How has defending faith changed in our current culture? A Conversation with Rebecca McLaughlin, Part 1

We have a really special series of episodes for you. For the next four weeks, we have guest Rebecca McLaughlin joining Pastor J.D. Rebecca is the author of Confronting Christianity: 12 Hard Questions for the World’s Largest Religion. If you haven’t read this book or have it on your shelf as a reference, you’re really missing out. She also recently released 10 Questions Every Teen Should Ask (and Answer) about Christianity. So get it for your middle or high schoolers. And lastly, her newest book that was released last week: The Secular Creed: Engaging Five Contemporary Claims.

This was originally recorded as a long-form conversation, but we’ve split it up into four questions and answers. Today, Pastor J.D. and Rebecca will spend a few minutes talking about the traditional approach to defending our faith versus current questions people are asking. What’s the solution to thinking differently? 

I will warn you, though, that there are significant Harry Potter spoilers here. So if you haven’t read the books or watched the movies over the past 20 or so years, it’s about time you know how it all ends.
