66: The Apologetic Church


The Apologetic Church

with Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit

Should the church be apologising for its past mistakes or holding on to its Christian foundations – which end of the spectrum will be a better witness in a world that is increasingly critical of the people of God?

In a world in which Christianity is losing its cultural dominance, and under fire for various reasons, should Christians strongly defend the church, or should they be apologetic about its wrongdoing?

There seems to be a wide spectrum between those who want to claim western society will regret abandoning its Christian foundations, and those who are quick to call it out from the inside. Whichever way you look at it, Church history is at the forefront of the public conversation.

Michael and Megan take a look at this phenomenon and then interview John Dickson about where his book, Bullies and Saints fits into this spectrum.

Then the WADR duo finishes with the critically acclaimed 2020 film Minari, which tells a slice of 1980s church history.


Less aggro, more conversation.

Is it even possible to have a deep discussion without it descending into chaos? Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit think yes, and want to show the rest of us how to do it.

There’s plenty of things they disagree on: free will, feminism, where you should send your kids to school and what type of church you should go to. But there are also plenty of other things that they have in common. They want to talk about all these things with conviction. But they also want the conversation to be constructive. Tune in to find out if that’s possible.




Oh boy, does John love questions. So don’t be afraid to send them in. At the end of each season we dedicate an episode or two for John to answer all your burning questions about Christianity. Want to know something more about a previous episode? Or perhaps you’ve got a question about faith that you’ve been struggling to find an answer for?
