TMR 236 : Dr. John H. Walton : The Lost World of the Flood

1/31/2020
What kind of narrative is Noah's Flood? Is it history or myth? Or are we, by even asking such a question, imposing our modern concepts on ancient Scripture? We welcome once again Dr. John H. Walton—Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College and Graduate School, Illinois—for a conversation on the fascinating book he co-authored with Dr. Tremper Longman III—Distinguished Scholar at Westmont College—entitled The Lost World of the Flood : Mythology, Theology and the Deluge Debate.

TMR 235 : Keith Giles : Jesus Unveiled

1/17/2020
Would many of today's churches be recognisable to the earliest Christians? Did Jesus envisage cathedrals with mitre-adorned bishops or megachurches with suit-wearing pastors? Or has something important been lost—or, at least, obscured from full vision—over the centuries? We are joined by Keith Giles—author of the well-known "Jesus Un..." series—for a bracing conversation on his challenging 2019 book, Jesus Unveiled : Forsaking Church as We Know It for Ekklesia as God Intended. Keith, "who...

12/31/2019
Would you sip a drink made with elephant dung? Are you brave enough to perform DIY cat surgery? Will Yuri Geller stop Brexit by the power of his mind? And will Frank Johnson raise enough cash through this evening's kickstarter to fund his expedition to the centre of the Doughnut Earth to look for jam? These (and other important questions) are answered as we kick off 2020 here at TMR with our annual New Year's Eve show—a crazy roundtable chat with high-ranking members of The Fireside...

TMR 233 : R. L. Solberg : TORAHISM

12/21/2019
Is Christmas a pagan festival? Must Christians keep the Law of Moses? We are joined by R. L. Solberg—author of the excellent new book TORAHISM : Are Christians Required to Keep the Law of Moses?—for a conversation on his book-length critique of the so-called Hebrew Roots Movement and the ways in which he seeks to engage, rather than to alienate, those affected by its teachings.

TMR 231 : Bob Purse : The Many Moods of Bob

11/8/2019
"Can a scientist believe in miracles?"

10/12/2019
We are joined by Gerry, David and "Hitstirrer", members of the informal engineering research group "The 9/11 Accountability Team"—with links to Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth—for a (rather unconventional) roundtable discussion on their ongoing research.

9/7/2019
In the run-up to the eighteenth anniversary of 9/11, we welcome the author Philip Kraske for a conversation on his exciting new novel, 11/9 and the Terrorist Who Loved Bonsai Trees, a thriller that—though it is a work of fiction designed to intrigue and entertain—also imaginatively explores possibilities that might cast light on events such as 9/11. In the words of key 9/11 researcher, Dr. David Ray Griffin: "Most of us who continue to do research on 9/11 focus primarily on the question of...

We are joined by the behavioural psychologist and Christian thinker Joel Furches for a conversation on his ongoing research into the contemporary phenomenon of deconversion from Christianity to Atheism.

TMR 223 : Brian Clegg : Before the Big Bang ?

7/18/2019
The Big Bang theory is well-established, but how complete is it? Does it describe the absolute beginning of physical reality, or is there perhaps more to be discovered that might place it in a broader cosmic context? We welcome the award-winning British science writer Brian Clegg, author of dozens of popular science books in print, for an engaging and thought-provoking conversation on his book Before the Big Bang—an interview conducted, specially for The Mind Renewed, by TMR's "roving...

One day there's a beautiful crop of something; the next morning 'tis all gone, or 'tis all rotten on the trees. How do you explain that?"—Madam Bell Caps We are joined by our roving reporter Mark Campbell, who shares and discuss with us a fascinating interview he had recently with the 107-year-old Madam Bell Caps (a.k.a.

TMR 218 : A Short Note on a Joomla! Update - Sorry - Migration

3/29/2019
On the B***** Day that never was (and which, I promise, shall not be mentioned in this short podcast), and in anticipation of a "proper" programme this coming Monday, I take the opportunity to say a few words about TMR's recent upgrade—sorry, I've done it again,"migration"—from one version of Joomla! to another. Although it might seem un-newsworthy to those of you (most, I'm sure) who are happily unfamiliar with the idiosyncracies of Joomla!—the content management system upon which TMR has...
