Podcasts You Should Know Part 6

After four grueling weeks of work, ministry activities, TV watching, and endless crucially important rounds of Candy Crush, I am finally getting off my duff and posting what I hope to be something useful.

Frank Turek is a  former aviator in the US Navy, has a master’s degree from the George Washington University and a doctorate from Southern Evangelical Seminary. He is the author of I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be An Atheist, and Stealing From God: Why Atheists Need God to Make Their Case (a review of which can be found here.) In addition to his writing, speaking and teaching as an adjuct professor at SES, Frank has a weekly television/radio show on the American Network called Crossexamined.

Crossexamined covers a multitude of apologetics related topics. Frank often interviews interesting guests, such as Carole Swain, Hugh Ross and Tim McGrew. When time permits, Turek takes listener calls. (His show airs Saturedays 10-11 am Eastern time.)

One thing I find ironic is that although Turek is known for what he calls “New Jersey style” apologetics, he is consistently gracious with those who disagree with him. Contrast this with Ken Ham, who regularly calls those who disagree with him “evolutionists” and followers of pagan myths. Why do I raise this? You can hear comments from Ham during commercial breaks on Turek’s show, and these short form comments are made without disclaimer. However, right before and after crossexamined, you hear “The following does not necessarily reflect the views of American Family Radio or the American Family Association.” I infer from this that Ham’s comments do reflect the views of the AFA.
