I used to walk a good 40 minutes round-trip to my job and to redeem the time I’d listen to a sermon or theological podcast. I’ll be posting some recommendations. I don’t agree with everything said, but these are informative and thought-provoking.
The Dividing Line
The Dividing Line is hosted by Christian Apologist James White. White is an excellent apologist (though admittedly somewhat controversial within Calvary Chapel circles) and this podcast covers a broad range of theological and apologetic topics. The episodes feel more like a radio show, where there aren’t clear distinctions between episodes. For example, White may discuss a news article he just read before the show, an upcoming debate, or take calls. Much of the show has White playing audio recordings of his debate opponents and commenting on their arguments as an outflow of his research. Some will find it frustrating that episodes aren’t strictly topical, or others will find White’s explicit Calvinism off-putting, but there is a lot of interesting content on any chosen issue if you are willing to look past these things.
The podcast doesn’t keep much of a backlog but I’ve enjoyed most episodes on homosexuality and Islam, two areas White is strong on and discussing frequently at the moment. It’s best to look at the episode description and download episodes that seem to cover interesting topics.
