Josh Rasmussen on Capturing Christianity

Christian philosopher Josh Rasmussen has recently completed a roughly 3 hour series of podcasts with Capturing Christianity, in which he discusses primarily the contingency argument for God. There are also some discussions of other topics, such as apologetic methodology and the problem of evil. You can find them here:

 

Both Rasmussen and Capturing Christianity are worth paying attention to in general, but these discussions specifically are quite good. They are a bit popular level rather than academic level, but still valuable.

Honeymoon Reading

I have just returned from my honeymoon, and so of course the first question anyone has for me is: what did you read while you were away?

So here is a list:

 

I am sure my wife had a great time.

Apologetics Resource: Capturing Christianity

I have recently come across a nice apologetics website called Capturing Christianity. Their mission and methodology are quite similar to mine, though they are clearly a good deal more professional (since they actually get paid for it). They have produced some good content. Especially on their youtube channel, since as you are probably aware most apologetics on youtube is garbage. Worth checking out.

My Sermons

Some people have asked me to post recordings of sermons that I have preached at my local church. Despite being a young man, I have been given the privilege of preaching at a Sunday morning gathering four times. Here they are, in reverse chronological order.

 

 

 

Discipleship in the age of Dawkins, Gaga, and Amazon

This podcast from TGC is one of the best I’ve heard in a while. Explaining discipleship in the context of a biblical eschatology vs. three competing modern eschatologies of enlightenment, sexual revolution, and consumerism. The focus on eschatology was extremely interesting and perceptive. If you want to think about how the church can engage modern culture, this may be very useful.

1 Week Offer: All Credo Courses Free

Some of you may be familiar with the website Credo, if you’ve spoken to me on discord you will have heard of other free offers from them. Probably Gary Habermas’ course on the Resurrection.

Today they’re advertising that you can “purchase” all their courses for free, offer valid for a week. I recommend you do so, some of it is very useful for apologetics.

Their website seems to be having a bad day, I am having trouble getting in. But some people have managed, and we have a whole week to get in and buy them.

I am not affiliated with Credo in any way, I just think this is a good resource.

Ligonier West Coast Conference on Apologetics

Ligonier Ministries recently had their 2018 West Coast Conference, this time the topic was Defending the Faith. I have not yet made my way through all the videos, but so far they are very valuable. Here is a link to each video, it doesn’t seem like Ligonier have put them into a playlist yet.
