Is The Bible ‘plain’?

Episode 100

Is The Bible ‘plain’?

with Michael Jensen, Megan Powell du Toit, and Mike Bird

If the word of God is prefect, why is it sometimes so hard to understand?

It’s the 100th episode of With All Due Respect!

To mark their century our guests chat with Mike Bird, Academic Dean of Melbourne’s Ridley College, discussing the question “Is the Bible clear in what it tells us?”

They also discuss the differences in church tradition when it comes to interpreting scripture.

Later, our hosts discuss Sarah Polley’s confronting film Women Talking, which explores the consequences of misunderstanding – and abusing – The Bible.

WADR is hosted by Megan Powell du Toit and Michael Jensen. It is part of the Undeceptions podcast network. 


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.
