The Tentative Apologist
My latest interview, an epistemological dialogue on the Christian evidentialism YouTube channel: ?
Here is a new interview I did addressing bad arguments against universalism: ?
A recent interview I did on hopeful universalism:
Over the last twenty years, we have heard a lot about the danger of religious ideology. What is often missing in the conversation is the fact that secularist ideology is equally dangerous. In 1997, secularist Nicholas Humphrey delivered the Oxford Amnesty Lecture which he titled “What shall we tell the children?” (Published in Social Research, […]
The title says it all. In this video, I explain how you can start on the path of being a Christian even in the midst of serious doubt. ?
