Case for Life with Aaron Brake - Part 1

February 13th, 2019

In this special episode, friend of the show Aaron Brake, presents Part 1 in a series dealing with abortion and the right to life. For those who know me, you know that this is an issue that I am very passionate about but also passionate about presenting a cogent, rational, scientific case for the anti-abortion/pro-life position. Aaron does a truly excellent drop in this series in presenting a robust case for the right to life of the fetus.

January 31st, 2016

In this episode we wrap up our discussion of the Doctrines of Grace by showing how Calvinism is relevant in the discipline of apologetics and why Calvinism is a more helpful response to the problem of evil and the problem of divine hiddenness than that of typical responses to those arguments.
