How to Disagree Without Losing Your Mind (on the That’ll Preach Podcast)

I was recently invited onto the That’ll Preach Podcast to discuss ways to reform our discourse. Take a listen!

Designer Children and the End of Humanity (Abolition of Man Series) That‘ll Preach

If you could determine the height, attractiveness, and IQ of your child before he or she was born would you do it? C.S. Lewis's final lecture in Abolition of Man raises uncomfortable points about how we have twisted what it means to be human through technology. Also, Paul reveals some embarrassing personal information.

The ‘Sin’ of Empathy? (with Hannah Anderson and Joe Rigney)

The moral character of empathy has recently been a subject of contentious online debate among Christians. Joe Rigney and Hannah Anderson, who have both engaged in these disputes with their different concerns, join me for an extended discussion of the question, hoping to clear up some misunderstandings on both sides, and to break some differences down to size.

Within the conversation we mention various articles and other material.
