Culture Shocks, March and April

I have previously made references to Barry Lynn's Culture Shocks podcast. There have been a handful of really good interviews over the past month or so. I would like to recommend  four in particular.

Jim Holt
April 4 . 2013
Author Jim Holt explores the greatest metaphysical mystery of all: why is there something rather than nothing? in Why Does the World Exist.

Ray Raphael
April 2 . 2013
By entering the world of the Constitution’s framers, and experiencing it one day after the next as they did, Ray Raphael helps us understand how and why they created the document they did in Constitutional Myths.

Candida Moss
March 28 . 2013
In The Myth of Persecution, Candida Moss, a leading expert on early Christianity, reveals how the early church exaggerated, invented, and forged stories of Christian martyrs and how the dangerous legacy of a martyrdom complex is employed today to silence dissent and galvanize a new generation of culture warriors.

Guy Harrison
March 25 . 2013
Guy Harrison’s, 50 Simple Questions for Every Christian is an unique book which poses questions that will hopefully foster mutual understanding between Christians and non-Christians.

The entire archive of Culture Shocks interviews is well worth exploring. These four just happen to be the ones that have most impressed me over the past few months.
