The City Podcast: Hunter Baker Judges You… on Ayn Rand

by Timothy Motte on November 24, 2014

The infamous Hunter Baker enjoyed Atlas Shrugged.

In public.

This poses a problem for John Mark Reynolds, who simultaneously respects Hunter Baker and shuns Ayn Rand. Can Dr. Baker convince Dr. Reynolds to read Rand with Christian charity?

The City Podcast: How to Win an Ideological War

by Timothy Motte on November 10, 2014

The Soviet Union definitely lost the Cold War.

But did the West really win it?

Dr. Barbara Elliott encountered hundreds of refugees as she was reporting on the fall of the Berlin Wall. Their stories reveal an unprecedented spiritual revolution.

God help the West if we replace Communism with decadence.

The City Podcast: Understanding the Cold War

by Timothy Motte on November 3, 2014

Everyone knows about the Nazis. They are immortalized and universally hated in movies, books, video games, scholarly works, museums, and the popular consciousness.

The Soviets, by some measures, were worse than the Nazis. And yet they have not achieved anywhere near the same notoriety. Even The City’s own Cate MacDonald admits to her unfamiliarity with the Cold War.

This podcast is for people who, like Cate, want to know more about what the Cold War was, why it happened, and what its effects were. It is also for people who are familiar with the Cold War but might be tempted to think the Soviets not so bad.

Dr. Elliott is giving a lecture November 5th, 2014, at Houston Baptist University on this topic and her experiences with Christian Soviet refugees. Contact us using the email below for more details.

The City Podcast: Worship as a Political Act

by Timothy Motte on October 27, 2014

Worship is an inherently political act.

This does not necessarily mean what you think it means. HBU theology professor, Dr. Randy Hatchett, and other special guests join Dr. Reynolds on this podcast to talk about the issue of politics and worship as raised in Dr. Hatchett’s recent blog post on why going to church is the only politics that finally matter.

Also addressed: Why is voting important for Christians to do? Would you vote for an atheist? and Is voting more important than boating? (No, really.)

Featuring: Dr. John Mark Reynolds, Dr. Randy Hatchett, Matthew Lee Anderson, Rachel Motte

The City Podcast: The History of the Unborn, pt. 2

by Timothy Motte on October 20, 2014

The fertility rate in the U.S. fell dramatically in the 19th century from approximately 7 children for every woman to about 3.5 children per woman. 

Historians don’t know exactly why this happened. But Dr. Anthony Joseph thinks that this does tell us at least one thing.

Namely, that the contraceptive mentality precedes the contraceptive technology.
