My Spirited Debate on “Christ and the City” Radio Show

I was invited to appear on a Detroit radio show this past week called Christ and the City, hosted by Christopher Brooks. It’s a right-leaning talk show with an evangelical focus, but I was energized and encouraged by the conversation because it was respectful and substantive. We didn’t see eye to eye on much (as you’ll hear), but we made space for the differences, trusting that listeners would reflect on the broadened perspective, with the hope of being enriched in the process.

The premise of the interview was a discussion of my book, Banned Questions About the Bible, but you’ll soon realize as you listen that we got into all sorts of other interesting topics, such as salvation, interpretation of scripture and the difference between “Truth” and “Fact” in the Bible.

My thanks to Pastor Brooks for having me on the show; here’s to many more discussions like this one in all of our futures!

    The interview went much better than I expected after reading your description: tempered, thoughtful, and civil. I loved it when you referenced the ancient Jewish tradition of debate and healthy argumentation.

    I didn’t think this was a heated conversation at all. You were indeed humble and at times it sounded as if the host was asserting his views. But, even the host remained calm and kind. You both showed us that two Christians with differing views can still remain friends and keep the conversation irenic.
