I am always looking for good listening, especially because there is so much bad listening on contemporary Christian radio. Much of what is available on the radio is either so poor theologically or so argumentative and vitriolic that when you find something collegial, engaging and easy to listen to, it is worth noting. So it is with the “Unbelievable?” Radio Programme with host Justin Brierly. It airs in the UK, don’t let the British accent fool you, these guys are really sharp even though they misspell “programme”, silly Brits.
The program (notice the economy of letters in the US spelling) I listened to featured noted skeptic author Michael Shermer and a Scottish pastor named David Robertson entitled “Is Christianity Good for Society”. You can listen to the program here, or subscribe to the RSS feed/netcast here.
David Robertson is my new hero. He is well spoken, sharp and really takes Shermer to task for making statements that he cannot back up with facts. I really enjoyed this broadcast. I will be listening to other shows on Eschatology, Science, atheism, divorce, with a great lineup of guests. Looks top notch and worth downloading to your mp3 player.
