Audio: Atheists Turned Apologists

Listen to This

You might remember how I met Holly Ordway and Steven Notman—2 atheists turned apologists—while leading a seminar at the Bayside Apologetics Conference featuring J.P. Moreland and William Lane Craig. I never got to hear their presentation, cause I was lecturing at the exact same time. But I did read Holly’s book, Not God’s Type: A Rational Academic Finds a Radical Faith (Listed in my post, “7 Books to Give as Gifts“) and loved it.

Inside the Mind of An Atheist

Maybe you saw Holly and Steven summarizing their talk, “Inside the Mind of an Atheist,” in this video and wished you could hear more. Now you can. After the Bayside event, William Lane Craig invited Holly and Stephen to share at his defender’s class. And thanks to Holly, you can hear the whole presentation on her blog, where she wrote:

We have quite different stories in many respects — Stephen’s journey was more emotional, mine more intellectual — highlighting the fact that there is no “one size fits all” method for evangelism.

By the way, you’ll notice their presentation is now called “Inside the Mind of a Former Atheist;” something we joked about in the control room at Bayside. All fixed now.

Once hostile to Christianity, Holly’s search for truth took her on an intellectual and emotional journey from atheism to faith in Jesus. She’s a college professor and a competitive sabre fencer. After listening to the presentation, look inside Holly’s new book: Not God’s Type: A Rational Academic Finds a Radical Faith
