Krishna, Christ and Hinduism debate – Ken Samples and Dipen Rajyaguru  

‘God Among Sages: Why Jesus is not just another religious leader’ is a new book by Ken Samples of Reasons To Believe that compares and contrast Jesus with founding figures from all the main religions. Krishna is a key figure in the Hindu religion. Ken debates with Dipen Rajyaguru of the Hindu Council UK.

Ken believe that Jesus is unique among all spiritual leaders and is superior to Krishna in terms of his historical and moral record and his offer of salvation. Dipen responds on why he believe Jesus is a revered spiritual figure but doesn’t believe Christians shouldn’t seek to promote him above any other figure.

Why is God hidden? Justin Schieber and Blake Giunta  

If God exists why doesn’t he make his existence more obvious to everyone? Atheist philosophers such as John Schellenburg have argued that God’s ‘hiddenness’ from non-believers who would otherwise want to be in a relationship with him is evidence that God does not exist. Justin Schieber return for a philosophical edition of the show to defend this objection against God.

Blake Giunta is a young Christian philosopher. He explains why he believes Schellenberg’s argument against God is faulty. God may have many good reasons not to reveal himself explicitly to non-believers.

Was Jesus created as an ancient myth? Richard Carrier vs David Marshall  

David Marshall is a Christian thinker and author whose latest book “Jesus is no Myth!: The fingerprints of God on the Gospels” aims to refute claims by authors such as Bart Ehrman, Reza Aslan and Richard Carrier that the Gospels borrowed from other religious figures and mystery religions of their day to create their picture of Jesus.

Richard Carrier engages with him in a ‘gloves off’ debate on whether Marshall’s critique of the mythicist theory is academically credible and his evidence for the authenticity of the Gospel’s picture of Jesus.

An Atheist and a Christian walk into a bar… Justin Schieber and Randal Rauser  

Randal Rauser is a Christian theologian and philosopher, Justin Schieber is an atheist philosopher. They’ve written a conversational book together called “An Atheist and a Christian Walk into a bar… Talking about God, The universe and everything” (Prometheus).

In this show they discuss one of the themes of the book: religious disagreement. If there is a God shouldn’t we expect to find people across the world to have broadly have the same ideas about him? And since they don’t, is that evidence against God? Justin says yes, Randal says no.
