In this episode, James Walker interviews Sandra Tanner, a great-great-granddaughter of the Mormon Prophet Brigham Young. Sandra left the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and became an evangelical Christian. She and her late husband, Jerald, have been recognized as some of the world's leading critics of early Mormon history and theology. Together, they founded Utah Lighthouse Ministry in downtown Salt Lake City, a Christian outreach to Latter-day Saints that Sandra directs. 

PART 1 of 2 - Sandra Tanner's Testimony: In part one of this interview, Sandra chronicles her amazing journey from Mormonism to Christianity. What caused her to have a crisis of faith? Why did she ultimately decide to leave? What does she believe now?

In this episode, Daniel Ray, Staff Apologist at Watchman Fellowship, interviews Rich Day about the controversial religious group known as the Black Hebrew Israelites. Recently under fire by the media, the group has been linked, probably unfairly, to last year's Jersey City shooting. The history and theology behind this loosely connected collection of organizations is fascinating and certainly unorthodox. Rich Day gives you a Christian critique of the background and insights into their unusual beliefs.

BONUS: Rich Day has also authored our 4-page Watchman Fellowship Profile on the movement. We are making it available for free this month here: www.watchman.org/files/ProfileBlackHebrewIsraelites.pdf.

Whether we recognize it or not, everyone is a philosopher. Our assumptions about reality, truth and life itself are based on the foundation of our underlying philosophies. For believers, we should diligently seek a personal philosophy that is sound, consistent and grounded in a biblical worldview. Beyond that, a good Christian philosophy is one that is also characterized by grace.

In this episode of Apologetics Profile, Daniel Ray concludes his conversation with Christian philosopher, Dr. Tim McGrew. They discuss every believer's responsibility to develop a Christian philosophy that is both sound and gracious. This is one way we love the Lord our God all our minds (Luke 10:27) and in doing so we ultimately glorify God. 

The interview takes place at the 2020 Defend apologetics conference on the campus of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Dr. McGrew earned a Ph.D. in Philosophy at Vanderbilt University in 1992 and is currently a professor in the Department of Philosophy at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo. His teaching interests include:

  • Epistemology
  • History and philosophy of science
  • Philosophical applications of probability
  • Philosophy of religion

BONUS: In March of 2018, Tim was also the guest author at Watchman Fellowship's Atheist & Christian Book Club (www.AtheistChristianBookClub.com). The book club is a monthly gathering in Arlington, Texas of believers and skeptics respectfully discussing important books from both perspectives. All clubs are also live streamed on Facebook Live. You can watch Tim McGrew's full book club here: https://vimeo.com/406917816

In times of deep personal crisis, we are often tempted to postpone or abandon our quest for biblical understanding and godly wisdom. We simply don't have time for such noble pursuits when we are in survival mode. But that reaction is dangerous as it focuses our attention on the fear of the circumstances and off the face of the Savior.

In this episode of Apologetics Profile, Daniel Ray begins his conversation with Christian philosopher, Dr. Tim McGrew, on the reason everyone does philosophy and why every believer should strive to develop a solid Christian philosophy to the glory of God -- especially during difficult times.

The interview takes place at the Defend apologetics conference on the campus of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Dr. McGrew completed his Ph.D. in Philosophy at Vanderbilt University in 1992 and is currently a professor in the Department of Philosophy at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo. His teaching interests include:

  • Epistemology
  • History and philosophy of science
  • Philosophical applications of probability
  • Philosophy of religion

BONUS: Tim was also interviewed for one of our meetings of the Atheist & Christian Book Club (www.AtheistChristianBookClub.com) to respond to Bart Ehrman's book, Jesus Interrupted. You can watch that interview here:

  • What are some ways doubt can be a tool that ultimately builds faith in God and His Word?
