Episode 029 – How Can We Defend The Church? – With Lisa Fields, Part 1
For the months of August and September, the Wise Idea Podcast and our host Christopher J Harris will tackle the tough topics surrounding the challenges facing today’s church. The emphasis is on the North American Protestant church. To be sure, the Church has it share of real issues and problems and the media has presented The Church as a problem institution that is out of touch with today’s culture. While not ignoring the realities of the challenges that the Church has, we want to approach those in a redemptive and restorative way and address some many of the failings of today’s church. This episode is Part 1 of our conversation featuring Apologists and Founder of The Jude 3 Project, Ms. Lisa Fields.
A Few Key Ideas:
- What is apologetics
- 1 Peter 3: 15
- “Culturally, not many African Americans are atheists” – Lisa Fields
- “African American theology generally has focused on suffering, black struggle, oppression, etc.” – Lisa Fields
