TMR 208 : Dr. Tim Ball : New Adages for the Technocratic Era

9/30/2018
More
This week we welcome back to the programme the inimitable Dr. Tim Ball—a "retired" lecturer in geography and historical climatology at the University of Winnipeg, and now perhaps the most entertaining and informative after-dinner speaker on the planet—for a fun, wide-ranging, thought-provoking (and, at times, provocative) conversation on his "new adages for the technocractic era". "Adages are proverbs, or short memorable statements, expressing a general truth, usually based on experience....

We welcome back to the programme Prof. Edgar Andrews, Emeritus Professor of Materials Science in the University of London, to discuss his recently-published book, What Is Man? (2018). In this fascinating follow-up to his earlier book, Who Made God?—which he came on TMR in 2013 to discuss—Professor Andrews turns his attention to the questions of Man's (humanity's) origins and significance in the cosmos. After exploring many of the competing answers offered by atheists and theists alike,...

9/2/2018
More
During the summer break, TMR shares another exclusive presentation by the highly-esteemed Christian philosopher Dr. William Lane Craig—this time a Q&A session on his work in Christian philosophy and apologetics. I take the opportunity to share a few items of interest and concern from the media. Back in 2011, my wife and I had the opportunity to go with Reasonable Faith (the organisation headed up by Dr. Craig) on a guided tour of Israel. On many of the evenings back at the hotel Dr. Craig...

TMR 205 : Gregory Coles : Single, Gay, Christian

8/10/2018
More
"I promise to tell you my story. The whole story."—Greg Coles We are joined by Gregory Coles, author of the elegant, yet challenging and thought-provoking, book Single, Gay, Christian, published by InterVarsity Press. To give an idea of the book, and thus the conversation, I can do no better than quote DA Carson (one biblical scholarship heroes) who wrote this for the blurb: "To say this book is important is a painful understatement. It is the candid, moving, intensely personal story of a...

6/23/2018

In place of our scheduled interview with Vanessa Beeley—which has had to be postponed until next week due to the dreaded summer lurgy—I use the opportunity to speak about upcoming shows and share an exclusive talk by Dr. William Lane Craig. Back in 2011, my wife and I had the opportunity to go with Reasonable Faith (the organisation headed up by Dr. Craig) on a guided tour of Israel.

TMR 200: Mike Hopkins : Conspiracy Theories & The Christian

6/10/2018
More
For TMR 200 we welcome back Mike Hopkins, co-host of Fight the Lies Radio, for a thought-provoking conversation on the subject of conspiracy theories and the Christian believer. Is it wrong, as some suggest, for Christians to believe in conspiracy theories? While this might seem like a strange question to ask on TMR, many today in the wider Christian community—including people in positions of leadership—strongly maintain that a Christian shouldn't entertain such thoughts. But what does...

Enjoy! "Johnny McMahon started podcasting under the...

We are joined once again by the lawyer and university lecturer Adeyinka Makinde for an in-depth interview on the subject of his recent essay, "Britain and Russia: An Enduring But Fruitless Rivalry". The crisis between Britain and Russia over the alleged poisoning of Sergei Skripal is the latest episode in what has been in recent years a de facto "Cold War" between Russia and the West. However, friction between Russia and Britain is longstanding; indeed it has spanned the centuries—a...

TMR 197 : Laura Maxwell : On the Dangers of Spectrophilia

4/27/2018
More
Strange though it may seem, there are people who claim to have had sexual experiences with "ghosts", "spirits" or "aliens". But what are we to make of such claims? We welcome once again the spiritual counsellor and radio host Laura Maxwell, who joined us last year to share her testimony of coming to faith in Christ after having once been involved in Luciferian spiritualism. For this second conversation she joins us to discuss the disturbing phenomenon of spectrophilia and the...

TMR 194 : Martin Summers and Tony Gosling : On the Skripal Affair

3/25/2018
More
Who was responsible for what happened on the 4th of March in Salisbury, UK? The British government rushed to judgement and blamed Vladimir Putin, as if following the script of a "carefully-constructed drama" (John Pilger) designed to persuade the UK people of Russia's guilt. But how careful a construction was it? And who else might more plausibly be considered the drama's author? During this ongoing "house-moving season" TMR takes the opportunity to share a thought-provoking conversation...

TMR 193 : Audioblog : A House Move Diary

3/11/2018
More
As many of you know, I have recently been heavily involved in my elderly parents' house move, so normal TMR programming is "on hold" for a while until they're settled into their new home. In the meantime, I'm using the opportunity to do a few unusual things. So here's one. In "A House Move Diary" I invite listeners simply to listen in on a selection of captured moments from the move, some of them amusing, some of them reflective and some (hopefully) offering food for thought. But as you...
