Jesus Philosopher

EPISODE: 57

Jesus Philosopher

with Dolores G. Morris & Angus Brook

The cliche is: ‘faith’ is the antithesis of knowledge … of wisdom. 

And therefore “Christian philosophy” is an oxymoron, right?

Our guests today, though are professional philosophers and they reckon that, while Christians could do with a healthy dose of philosophy, so could sceptics. We all need to think deeply about what we believe, and why we believe it.

And if you think – as atheists like Sam Harris and many others do – that scepticism or atheism doesn’t involve any mere ‘beliefs’, well, you probably especially need to think this stuff through. 

Meet our guests
