Coming Soon: Interview with Justin Brierley

Are you a fan of Premier Christian Radio's Unbelievable? radio program with Justin Brierley? (I know I am.) Ever wanted to know more about Justin himself and his story, which we don't get when he's neutrally moderating debate? (I know I have.) Stay tuned for an upcoming episode of the Theopologetics Podcast--if not the next one--in which I'll have the honor of interviewing Justin, asking him how his experiences as host of Unbelievable? have impacted his faith.

Episode 8: Walking Contradiction

Episode 8 of the Theopologetics Podcast is now available! In this episode I discuss several alleged contradictions in Scripture, pointed to by theological liberals as evidence against the inerrancy of Scripture, and by skeptics as evidence against the overall reliability of the Bible.

It Was a Crippled USB Cable

Turns out the USB cable sent with the Yeti was defective. Using a different USB cable, the Yeti appears to work just fine. Yay!

Oh No! The Crippled Yeti

Imagine my excitement upon arriving home today to find my new Blue Microphones Yeti had been delivered, only to plug it in and discover it is damaged. It'll be another week or so while I send the mic back to Blue and have a replacement shipped, before I can use it. Perhaps I'll record another episode in the meantime using my XBox 360 Rock Band Microphone. Bummer...

Calling All Pray-ers: Discussion With an Atheist

Please pray for me and a friend's sister, an atheist who has engaged in a dialogue with me to discuss Christianity. I know that I cannot change her heart; only the Lord can do that. Please pray that if it's His will, He would speak (or in the case of our email exchange, type) through me, and touch her heart, opening her heart and mind to her need for the Savior, Jesus Christ.

Standing to Reason on Baptismal Regeneration

I'm becoming quite the regular on Greg Koukl's Stand to Reason radio show! In yesterday's show (Sunday, 9/12; download in the podcast), starting at about 00:29:50, Greg took my call. In it, I asked him for help discussing baptismal regeneration, the view I've discussed in episodes 2 and 4 of my podcast, and here at my blog, which holds that salvation happens at water baptism.

Shipping Soon: Monster of a Deal

In the next episode of the Theopologetics Podcast, my voice shouldn't be quite so excruciating to listen to. Episodes 1 through 7 were recorded using the cheap USB microphone that came with Rock Band for the XBox 360, but check out what's shipping to my house soon:

The Blue Microphones Yeti USB Microphone is a monster of a microphone--both in terms of quality and size--but it was also a monster of a deal at, where I got it and a high quality pop filter for about $60 off what they would have normally cost together. With 46 5-star reviews, and 7 4-star reviews (and only 5 poorer reviews), it seems this is a superior quality microphone, and I can't wait to try it out. And with the pop filter, you should no longer have to put up with the popping sound from my "p" words, which I've been able to minimize somewhat, but haven't managed to get rid of entirely.

If the poor sound quality or popping "p" words has made it difficult for you to listen along, please give me one more chance and wait for episode 8. I'm not 100% sure what the topic will be; either tongues, or faith alone, or alleged contradictions in Scripture. Regardless, the sound quality should be vastly improved, and I hope you'll find it easier to listen along.
