I had a great time with Adam in Edmonton. While we were there, we had a chance to spend some time with author and theologian Randal Rauser, who hosted us on his Tentative Apologist Podcast. What I love about this interview, and Randal in general, is his commitment to the big questions and his respect for contrasting viewpoints.
To have someone like Randal (who’s professor of historical theology at Taylor Seminary) moderate our discussion adds tremendous depth to my and Adam’s exchange. Besides his impressive academic credentials and pedigree, he’s partaken in a similar writing/event project with Justin Schieber in their book An Atheist and a Christian Walk into a Bar: Talking About God, the Universe, and Everything.
We discussed a number of topics including religious and secular humansim, morality, the problem of evil and suffering, the just city, how to celebrate a spirit of critical inquiry and truth seeking, and my and Adam’s shared cause in ending human trafficking.
