A critical, historical survey of the development of the main schools of philosophy and the principal developments in Christian doctrine and thought. After a brief introduction to philosophical thinking, the course concentrates on philosophical movements from Heraclitus to contemporary existentialism. Each school of thought is evaluated from a distinctively Reformed perspective.
 
Spanning the timeframe from centuries before Christ to the present day, Dr. John M. Frame explores the intersection between philosophical and Christian theological reflections in the ancient Greeks, early Christian Fathers, Medieval Christianity, the Reformation, the Enlightenment, and post-Enlightment periods. This course will guide the listener through the thoughts and writings of major philosophical and theological thinkers, enabling the student to become more conversant with what has dev ...
 
The Christian Atheist is devoted to exploring all of life as it relates to faith in Christ. Philosophy, psychology, science, art and literature all contribute to our pursuit of Truth and the life that we are called to live, to the adventure of discovering the world and our place within it. The Author of the universe speaks to us through many means, and we try to attune our minds to all of them here, to discover and live the Way to Life through the Word, spoken, written and experienced. It IS ...
 
Neil Newton and Phil Thompson have been talking about religion, philosophy, politics, music, sports, and pretty much anything they felt like talking about every since they became friends while working together at the University of Pittsburgh in the 20-teens. Though Neil is an Atheist and Phil is a Christian, they found that they agreed on more things than not, especially the evils of instant replay! ACAAAWIAB will explore topics like debt, heaven and hell, the Biblical Jubilee, philanthrocap ...
 
Three Christians, teachers, and intellectuals gather digitally to hold forth on literature, theology, philosophy, and other things human beings do well.

In Episode 4 of ACAAAWIAB, Neil and Phil explore the meaning of freedom of religion. What is is it? What are some common ways it's misunderstood? Can real belief even exist without it? We'll discuss British theologian Leslie Newbigin's distinction between de facto and ideological pluralism and how it applies to contemporary society, the parable of …
 
In Surprised by Joy, C. S. Lewis quotes Lucretius: Had God designed the world, it would not be A world so frail and faulty as we see. These lines, Lewis says, present the strongest of all arguments for atheism. I agree, and I suggest that broadly construed they encompass the spectrum of arguments against divine authorship. I challenge this argument…
 
I send this letter back to September 11th, 2001, a watershed for our world and my personal history. Evil is insidious. It can destroy with a suddenness and violence that shocks and disconcerts, but it HAS a logic, too; reason, evidence and motivational justification can lead to great evil, as well as great good. Reason is a tool, and like all tools…
 
In Episode 3 of ACAAAWIAB, Neil and Phil explore how there is often a difference between what we say we believe and what we really believe. Maybe we participate in institutional religion and maybe we don’t, but either way we may find that aspects of our experience such as economics, science, or technology (or all three) begin to function as unoffic…
 
This letter goes back to my atheist self around the year 2000, after I had spent close to five years living as an atheist in the academic world. What advice can I offer that young atheist who is becoming increasingly disillusioned with his new faith community?Dr. John D. Wise による
 
In this episode, Neil and Phil talk about the Levitical Jubilee (Leviticus 25), how the concept of Jubilee gets transformed in both Old and New Testaments, and the implications of Jubilee principles on how we think about ecology, debt, justice and more. Along the way they discuss ideas about debt and society by David Graeber, Louis Althusser, and m…
 
Ethics as an argument for God's existence seldom convinces the unbelieving, as it is conceived at the wrong level. Atheists know themselves as ethically concerned while at the same time denying God. That is, there is a fundamental disconnect between their ontological experience as ethical beings and the metaphysical explanation of ethics as depende…
 
In the premiere of A Christian and an Atheist Walk into a Bar, Neil Newton and Phil Thompson talk about their back stories and how they came to hold their beliefs, the general idea of belief systems, common grace, Emmanuel Levinas, empathy, and more. For this episode’s “Should I really care about this?” segment, Phil and Neil will hold forth on VAR…
 
In traditional ethical theory we have two broad systems of thought, deontology, which bases ethics in obligation to follow an ethical standard, and consequentialism, which tries to ground ethics in the value of the consequences of our actions. Ethics, I argue, is sui generis, unique. It is its own discrete field of value, standing outside the alrea…
 
Ethics addresses the question, how should I act? We begin by clarifying what it means to act in opposition to the deterministic notion of react. We discover that action is built on rationality, and involved the uniquely human faculty of imagination, the ability to structure a negation, and thus have both a past and a future. In this way, being spre…
 
Building on the picture of human rationality we presented in episode 18, we focus our attention on human rationality and Value, which is central to ethics. We argue that value is the very substance (not matter) of our experience of the world, that even perception is inextricably bound to value. As a consequence, we find that value exists in the sam…
 
We begin a series of episodes on ethics to discover what it might teach us about human beings, God, and our possible relationship. We begin by looking at human rationality, which separates us from the animal kingdom. What does it mean to be rational?

Responding intelligently to the critic means paying attention to real problems, not sweeping them under the rug. In this edition, the first of two, we examine the critical comments of Max Doubt concerning the superstition that he claims infests the whole Bible.

The Old Testament is a complex narrative, to be treated carefully, but it is rich beyond our imaginations in insight, wisdom and information. It is also full of potential "stumbling blocks" to faith, especially for the modern seeker. In this edition of the Christian Atheist we explore what is, for me at least, one of the most troublesome aspect of …
 
Uriah, Job ... and Frodo. Part of being human is passing moral judgments. There are proper and improper ways of doing this. We look at the story of David and Uriah, and of Job. These stories tempt us to judge God, which requires us to take HIS position, His moral authority, His righteousness. We do this same thing in judgment of our fellow human be…
 
This episode represents my first attempt on YouTube to express my joy in returning to the Savior while doing justice to my journey, God's story in my life. It was from this seed that The Christian Atheist was born. I hope it retains some value. If you find value in our message and material, consider supporting us via Paypal at Romanschapter5@comcas…
 
June 6th, 1944. The allied Invasion of Normandy in WWII is a major watershed in history. We commemorate that day with a reading of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's D-Day prayer for the troops and the nation.

There is a long history of arguments for God's existence offered by the faithful - the cosmological, the teleological, the ontological. As means to the conversion of atheists I find these arguments nearly useless, because I knew them quite well as an atheist without ever being compelled to reverse my atheism. This episode is a clarion call to Chris…
 
Rationality is a more expansive notion than mere intellect. I make the case that faith in God and Christ is a rational response in our world today, and that value (which is also part of human rationality) is a good basis on which to choose theism over atheism.

As my life unraveled, the intellectual noose tightened. Eventually, as C. S. Lewis said about his own conversion, I had to acknowledge that "God is God." My wife Jenny became the REAL incarnate ideal that reflected my own intellectual dishonesty as well as the larger reality of the Incarnation of God in Christ. Reason is not opposed to faith, but f…
 
My wife, Jenny, became my portal back to Christ, an incarnation of the reality of God in human form. One of the constant refrains of my renewed Christian faith is the mirror of the large structures of creation in the smaller. The Incarnation of God in man as the Redeemer is seen at smaller scale in God's image in man, in the relationship of Church …
 
The Canadian psychologist, Jordan Peterson, came onto the scene at precisely the right moment in my odyssey from atheism to Christ. He reminded me of the profundity of the Biblical narrative, taking seriously from a psychological and academic perspective a text I had dismissed from my consideration years ago. It was his practical insights and his u…
 
Atheistic existentialist Jean-Paul Sartre seems an unlikely character to play a prominent role in my turn from atheism to Christ, but his influence on my thinking is profound. In many ways Sartre reflects Kant's conclusions that faith is a basic component of human experience, and that reason builds upon faith as foundation. It was Sartre who convin…
 
Immanuel Kant, in the face of the overwhelming forces of science and philosophy in his day, undertook the monumental task of limiting the claims of knowledge to transcendent insight, in order to allow for the possibility of morality, of human freedom. That is, Kant made it clear that while we can think of human beings as determined by natural and s…
 
The odyssey of my return through the Looking-glass, to a recognition that faith in Christ is a fully rational response , if not the only one, to the evidence given us, was not simple, quick, or short. In this episode, I trace out the long-curve of a growing understanding, based on teaching Plato and Socrates in the university classroom over many ye…
 
My conversion from Christianity to Atheism started with commitment to a fundamental principle, Truth above all, and at all costs. It will be seen that this SAME principle led me back to Christ, the Way to, and source of, all Truth. The Machinery of the Looking Glass tells the story of how God used my intellectual odyssey through philosophy as both …
 
Who is the Christian Atheist? John Wise is a philosophy professor who spent the bulk of his academic career as an atheist. In 2019 he underwent a dramatic (re)conversion to faith in Christ, and now, seeing the world through the dual lenses of Christianity and atheism, he seeks to understand how a 21st century worldview, a respect for science and a …
