    Inquisition: Ricky Allen & Zac Poppen

    Ricky Allen and Zac Poppen are two Christians who have become uncomfortable with the rigid requirements of the pervasive evangelical orthodoxy in America today. Though both revel in the study of theology and find spiritual discussions thrilling, they recognize that their beliefs place them firmly outside the boundaries set by the mainstream American Church. In an online exchange, Ricky and Zac semi-seriously suggested the establishment of a “Heretics Club” to serve the many believers who, like them, didn’t necessarily believe everything they’re supposed to.

    Inquisition: George Yancey

    Dr. George Yancey is the author of "There is No God: Atheists in America," based on research in which I personally participated. He is a professor of sociology at the University of North Texas, contributes at Patheos in the Evangelical Channel at the blog, Black, White, and Gray, is a Senior Contributor at the conservative political and religious website The Stream, and has also written for Christianity Today. In this interview, Dr. Yancey and I talk about racial issues within the Church and the atheist community, and the prospects for the future of both.

    Inquisition: Dan Ray Update

    In this follow-up interview, I spoke again with Dan Ray, now a graduate of the Houston Baptist University Master's program in Christian Apologetics, and who is looking for more things to do in that realm. With some help from an old professor, as well as an astronomer who has experience with the Hubble space telescope, Dan may have found something to move his mission forward.

    Inquisition: Averroes Paracha Update

    Averroes Paracha was the first interview posted to the Inquisition series, recorded mere hours before his baptism into the Christian faith. In this follow-up interview, Averroes talks about the struggles he's had since then, focusing on the challenges of being a "Skeptical Christian," and becoming comfortable living outside the boundaries defined by strict orthodoxy.

    Inquisition: Kymberli Cook

    Kymberli Cook describes herself as a "reluctant apologist," which is an interesting characterization coming from someone who works at the Dallas Theological Seminary's Hendricks Center for Christian Leadership and Cultural Engagement, a position that requires her to professionally support the apologetical initiatives promoted by that institution.

    I sat down with Kym at the DTS campus to talk more about how a fiery young Christian girl from Kansas found herself working closely with venerable academics like Dr. Darrell Bock and Dr. Daniel Wallace, and what she envisions for the future of the Church.
