This webinar was recorded live on 6 April, 2020. Glen Scrivener is an experienced online host of hundreds of conversations — the kind that really matter. He’s joined by psychologist Dr Joanna Jackson and church leader, Rev. Dr Paul Blackham.
In this episode we talk about what everyone is talking about: Dominic Cummings, Boris Johnson, that Durham trip, the media and the tidal wave of splenetic rage engulfing the UK! But into that context we discuss the 10 standards which everyone in the west acknowledges, whatever side they take on the culture wars. We’re actually united by certain expectations that we share and these expectations are thoroughly biblical and totally bonkers. They are bonkers, that is, apart from Jesus Christ. He is the one who can come good on all our expectations. He is the one who can heal our divided nations and divided hearts. He is our one hope moving forwards.
Justin Brierley has hosted hundreds of good faith conversations on the Unbelievable show on Premier Christian Radio. Through the show, the podcast and now the Big Conversations video series he is reaching millions. Here Glen Scrivener talks to Justin about many things including his own appearance on the show earlier in the year when he debated Matt Dillahunty. They also talk about some other intriguing cases of sceptics coming closer to faith — like Tom Holland, Douglas Murray, and Dave Rubin. Something is going on. As the meaning crisis hits, the gospel is powerfully at work and we get Justin’s take on it all, as well as his best tips for holding good faith conversations.
Rachel Gilson began at Yale University identifying as Gay and an Atheist. Then she read a stolen book and her life was changed forever. Rachel has written the new book Born Again This Way, published by the Good Book Company. Here Glen Scrivener talks to her evangelism, sex, marriage, family and the radical kinds of churches we need.
Vaughan Roberts is the rector of St Ebbes, Oxford and the co-author (with Lizzie Ling) of the new book Abortion. Here Vaughan speaks of his context among a liberal city and among conservative churches — and how both contexts make it difficult to talk about abortion. But talk about it we must. Vaughan tells us why and how in this fascinating interview with Glen Scrivener.
Becky Pippert’s first book, Out Of The Salt Shaker, is a Christian classic about evangelism. 40 years later, she shares the fruits of 4 more decades of sharing her faith the world over. This interview with Glen Scrivener is gold dust for any would-be witness to Christ.
So far in 2020 we have tragically lost 175 000 people to COVID-19. In the same period we have lost 13 million to abortion! In this episode of the Speak Life Podcast, Glen Scrivener speaks to Dean Gavaris, founder of Gateway Pregnancy Centers in the States. He shares much wisdom about how to offer help and offer Christ in the context of a crisis pregnancy.
Glen Scrivener interviews Brooke Newman and Garry Williams about homeschooling and asks the questions on many people’s lips: Why do it? Isn’t it a flight from the Great Commission? Won’t it make the children weird? How do you manage it? Any tips for new home-schoolers (that’s all of us since lockdown!)?
