New podcast: Alister McGrath | Doorway to Wonder

Alister McGrath joins @jstump to talk about his book Born to Wonder . McGrath describes his early conversion to Christianity as feeling like he walked through a doorway—his new found faith gave him a fresh perspective when looking at the world. But instead of being content with standing just inside the doorway, he found that there was a whole world worth exploring. After many decades of deep exploration he has come away with a higher tolerance for uncertainty, even in the midst of all the knowledge and wisdom he has found.


Thank you! I enjoyed listening to this and it led me to the recording of Mr McGrath’s discussion with Richard Dawkins. I appreciate the civility and respect shown in that conversation and learned from it.

Welcome! Was that this one? I enjoyed it, too.


Yes. A nice example of discussion without rancor.
