Last year, Justin Brierley published his book Unbelievable? Why After Ten Years of Talking With Atheists, I’m Still a Christian.
At the time, I was invited to give the book an endorsement. I wrote the following:
“Over the last decade, I’ve come to recognize “Unbelievable” with Justin Brierley as a show of unparalleled quality. Week by week Brierley facilitates in-depth conversational debate across deep ideological divides with just the right balance between rigor and accessibility. The same may be said of Justin’s new book. Fans of “Unbelievable” will find here a treasure trove of insights and reflections mined from a decade of hosting debates on life’s biggest questions. But Justin’s book is not simply a backstage pass to his fine radio show. It stands on its own as an eloquent, accessible, and winsome apologetic in the grand tradition of C.S. Lewis.”
Not surprisingly, however, not all readers were as persuaded by Justin’s case. In particular, the book gave rise to an entire book-length rebuttal from a group of atheists who appropriately titled their work, Still Unbelievable (click here to read Still Unbelievable for free). So Justin decided to invite two of the contributors of Still Unbelievable — David Johnson and Andrew Knight — onto the show for a conversation/debate in which they could explain some of the reasons they were unpersuaded by his arguments. And to balance things out, Justin kindly invited me to appear on the show as his wingman.
This latest episode of “Unbelievable” is titled “Can Justin defend his own book?” is now available. You can Listen/Download here. And then join the debate!
