  • What might we learn from history about the parallel rising of Christianity and Islam? (00:11:35)

  • The panel shares thoughts on substitutionary atonement, and how it is going to be an issue in the next generation. (00:41:52)

      I admit that he’s not always my favourite preacher, but when I hear him talk about Jesus I am so aware of my own failing in that area, and at the same time spurred on and re-directed to keep Christ at the centre of all things.
