Archives For Behind the Curtain Podcast

Dr. Ravi Zacharias and Abdu Murray are coming to Michigan this week for “Ask Anything” events, sponsored by Cru.  These events are free; you will want to attend and bring as many friends as you can.

Episode 33 of the “Behind the Curtain” Ministry Podcast features an interview by Noah Filipiak with Dr. Ravi Zacharias.  Ravi discusses the types of questions about faith and truth that people are asking in today’s society, from pluralism to atheism to relativism to Islam and so much more.  Hearing Ravi’s perspective will make you realize how much is at stake, not just for you and your friends as individuals, but for Western and global society altogether.  Following the interview with Dr. Zacharias, Noah sits down with Brian Langford, Cru’s Campus Director at Michigan State University.  Noah and Brian discuss the faith climate on today’s college campuses and why the “Ask Anything” event with Ravi and Abdu is something people will not want to miss.

Pastor Bryan Loritts discusses how to become a multi-ethnic church, as well as the cost and challenges therein.  Noah Filipiak also asks Pastor Bryan for help in navigating the Christian subculture of church planting, pastoring and being an author in a way where we don’t end up measuring ourselves by performance-oriented metrics.

Noah Filipiak interviews Shane Claiborne about how to engage churches in helping the poor, activism and justice issues.  They talk about celebrityism within popular Christianity, about what can be done to stop the death penalty (Shane’s latest book is Executing Grace: How the Death Penalty Killed Jesus and Why It’s Killing Us), and about how to be an ordinary radical as both a single person and as a married person (and what to do if one spouse is moved toward this and the other isn’t).
