In this podcast, Jim examines the impact that Christian believers have had on our world and the impact that theistic faith has on culture. While many "new atheists" argue that belief in God is "not good" for our society, the truth is just the opposite. Believers have contributed to our culture in ways that are often taken for granted and our country was founded in Christian principles held by theistic believers. Jim describes four central Christian beliefs that have helped to shape our society in a positive way as we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Savior.

In this podcast, Jim continues examining the reliability of the Bible by studying the manner in which the New Testament was collected and canonized. Can we trust that the New Testament we have today is the same New Testament that first century believers had? How was the New Testament collected? What was the standard used to decide if a text should be included in the canon? Doe the New Testament contain errors of transmission? Do these errors compromise the text? Jim also talks about the difference between dialogue and debate and discusses the recent headlines related to Tiger Woods.
