What can we learn from conflicting ideologies like New Atheism and others that can help us be more effective in ministry? In this week’s conversation on FrontStage BackStage, host Jason Daye is joined by Dr. Alister McGrath. Alister is a respected professor and the director of the Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion at Oxford University. He is a prolific writer, and his latest book is titled “Coming to Faith Through Dawkins.” Together, Alister and Jason discuss the importance of looking for opportunities in cultural belief systems that allow us to point people to Jesus. Alister also shares a rising ideology that we need to be aware of and how we can minister to people who are wrestling with it.
