In this field episode of the podcast, Ben Virgo of Christian Heritage London learns about Joe Boot's own story how he came to be an apologist, some of his formative authors, and the nature of human beings and the apologetic task.
How do we faithfully witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ in an age that seems to have abandoned any real notion of truth? Joe Boot demonstrates how to effectively present the gospel without compromising on its essential truths, and examines some of the prevailing worldviews that we must understand and contend with in such a post-truth context.
Islam has positioned itself as a correction and completion of Judaism and Christianity. However, Islam and the Quran are incompatible with Christian doctrine and the text of Scripture. The church must take the growth of Islam seriously; it is a movement and a worldview that is as political as it is religious, with significant implications for culture and society. As heralds of the gospel of Jesus Christ, we are entrusted with delivering the good news of the gospel to Muslims, to declare freedom in Christ from slavery to sin, and to present Christ, not sinful man, as the sovereign King who rules justly and righteously.
Is man truly “wired” to believe in God? The claim has been contested for centuries. Ultimately, we will live in either faithfulness to or rebellion against the covenant God of Scripture.
Worship of the true God has always been unintelligible to depraved minds. Natural man's impulse is toward self-worship, most clearly depicted in humanism and paganism. These false doctrines are most insidious not in the broader culture, but in the church.
