Apologetics315- Interview with Former Atheist Holly Ordway

Brian Auten of Apologetics315 has been doing some outstanding interviews with various Christian apologists. His latest interview, with former atheist Holly Ordway, is of special interest!

Brian writes:

"Today's interview is with Holly Ordway, professor of English and literature and author of Not God's Type: A Rational Academic Finds a Radical Faith. She talks about her background as an atheist, her encounters with Christians in the past, the influence of literature and poetry, personal influences from others, looking at arguments for the existence of God, counter-arguments against God, psychological explanations, her encounter with Christ, her advice to skeptics and her advice to Christian apologists.

Full Interview MP3 Audio here. (42 min)

I hope you enjoy this interview!

Courage and Godspeed,

Thanks for this post -- I'm listening to the interview and have subscribed to her podcast. While I never descended into atheism (being a preacher's kid who drifted away from the faith -- but not from Jesus -- for some 30 years), I appreciate Holly's emphasis on the REALITY of Jesus, who is truly a living presence, who stands ready at all times to obliterate any doubt of the Father's pervasiveness. For some, the process just requires an initial willingness to listen with an open heart -- which is not always easy if we are conditioned by hardcore academia.
