The City Podcast: Christianity on Trial

by Timothy Motte on August 18, 2014

We place a lot of faith in the judicial system’s ability to discover truth. We use it to determine everything from parental custody to bankruptcy of corporations to the death penalty. These are weighty matters.

Why would we not apply this tool that we trust to the claims of Christianity?

That is the subject of today’s podcast, featuring Mark Lanier, author of Christianity on Trial.

The City Podcast: Joy in Prison and Other Epiphanies

by Timothy Motte on July 21, 2014

No one knows a text better than a scribe.

When you painstakingly transfer a text word-by-word from one medium to another, you develop a deep familiarity with it. The slowness of the process allows you to ponder and meditate upon what it says. The exactitude required means that you don’t miss any details. 

That’s what Rachel Motte does. As the editor of robertbsloan.com, it’s her job to transcribe Dr. Sloan’s vast archive of recorded sermons and adapt them for easy reading in a text format. Because he is both a very learned New Testament scholar and an excellent communicator, she reports that living with his preaching so intimately has taught her volumes about the Bible.

In this podcast, Rachel sits down with Dr. David Capes (another New Testament scholar at HBU) and shares some of the insights she has gathered while working on Dr. Sloan’s series on Philippians.

What do you do when you want to learn a text well? Have you tried copying it word-by-word?

Featuring: Rachel Motte, Dr. David Capes

The City, a podcast of Houston Baptist University: Smart. Sane. Spiritual.

Featuring: Cate MacDonald, Dr. Holly Ordway, Peter Gross

When did you realize you were an adult?

Anthropologists tell us that rites of passage, either intentional or de facto, are a very crucial signal of entering adulthood. What was yours? Did you have one? What does a specifically Christian rite of passage look like?

Peter David Gross, Director of Wheatstone Ministries, is working with many Christian youth and inviting them into Christian adulthood. This could change your entire view of youth ministry. Or it could merely change how you interact with the Christian youths in your life.
