In this podcast, Jim answers listener email related to a variety of topics, including the issue of abortion. What exactly is it that we are dealing with in the womb? Is it a human being or something else? Is there something we can learn from criminal investigations and jury trials that might help us to think properly about the nature of the embryo? Jim also addresses the concerns of an atheist related to the early dating of the Gospels.

In this podcast, Jim interviews Brett Kunkle, the Student Impact Director from "Stand to Reason", in an effort to get a "snapshot" of youth ministries across the country and of the challenges that face young Christians. What is the biggest challenge facing the next generation of believers? How is the Church doing in responding to the challenge? What more can be done to guard the truth that has been entrusted to us?

Critics often claim that Jesus never really lived and that the Gospels were written centuries after his "supposed" life. These same critics claim that the Gospels are mythologies that appear late in history rather than eyewitness testimonies that first appeared within the lifetimes of eyewitnesses. Did the Gospels appear early enough to have been written by eyewitnesses? In this podcast, Jim examines the textual and historical evidence for the dating of the Gospels in an effort to establish whether or not we should trust what they say about Jesus.

In this podcast, Jim responds to the challenge of unanswered prayer. If the Christian God exists, why doesn't he consistently answer the prayers of his followers? The prayers of devout, deserving Christians go unanswered every day. Are these unanswered prayers evidence that the Christian God simply does not exist? What does the Bible teach about the nature of prayer? Are there some prayers that God simply will not answer? Jim offers a filter by which we can determine if God has actually answered a prayer, and a response to atheistic criticism.
