  • Misunderstanding Science

    30 APR 2024 · Some say that Christians are “anti-science.” Sillier yet, some claim that our faith requires us to believe things that have been proven untrue or impossible. As ridiculous as these claims are, the relationship between faith and science sometimes seems more complicated than it really is. And sometimes that’s our fault. Apologist Roy Swart, an engineer who has worked in various scientific fields his entire career, says that Christians often misunderstand what “science” really is and are therefore intimidated in their efforts to share the gospel. Listen in as host Mike Schutt has Roy unpack this idea with an eye toward adjusting our mindset to strengthen our confidence in the gospel of Christ.

  • Teaching & Learning in Community: CS Lewis’s "Transposition"

    30 JAN 2024 · C.S. Lewis is the greatest modern Christian apologist, having given an answer for the hope within him across myriad genres, relationships, and cultural topics. His academic work, his fiction, his essays, his poetry, and his cultural insights have moved readers for nearly 100 years. Mike Schutt’s guests on this episode testify to the role of reading Lewis in their own lives, and they explore the teaching, learning, and discipleship in the context of reading his essays with others. Dell Cook and Andrew Morton encountered Lewis, not for the first time, together during a summer reading group as they served students with Worldview Academy, and they draw on that experience as they seek to help us form the right mindset about learning and teaching. This dialogue is from one of Worldview Academy’s monthly “Worldview Conversations,” edited for this format.

  • Reforming Criminal Justice

    28 NOV 2023 · Public discourse about “justice” over the past decade or two has been anything but coherent. Focused on politics, lacking nuance, and devoid of any philosophical foundation, our conversations have led nowhere. Happily, a new addition to the conversation has arrived in the form of Reforming Criminal Justice: A Christian Proposal, by Matthew Martens, a DC attorney and former prosecutor. Martens sees the need for a deeper discourse on criminal justice in America, and his book brings years of experience inside the system to the discussion. In this episode of Mindset, Martens and host Mike Schutt unpack some of the themes of the book as they explore this complex and often divisive subject.

  • Musings on Monsters

    26 OCT 2023 · If monsters are monstrous, why do so many of us love them in our movies and fiction? It does seem as if most of us are drawn to monsters in some basic way. One need not love horror movies to recognize the draw of a good dragon, orc, or troll. Surely, J.R.R. Tolkien was onto something when he suggested that monsters are central to the human story of struggle and glory. Join Mike Schutt and philosopher JAMES McGLOTHLIN as they muse on the meaning of monsters in art and the Christian imagination.

  • Reading Bad Stories

    22 SEP 2023 · “Good literature may tell us the mind of one man,” G. K. Chesterton wrote, “but bad literature may tell us the mind of many men.

MARK BERTRAND about why the bad stories are often best for Christians taking the temperature of contemporary culture.

  • Considering Suffering with Pastor Chad Warren

    17 AUG 2023 · The dilemma of suffering can be a real barrier to faith in an all-good, all-powerful God. It challenges our own faith— can we really trust a God who allows the death of parents and the suffering of children?— as well as our neighbor’s. Whether our concern is apologetics or our own struggles with doubt, it is helpful to consider suffering in the light of day, to try to come to grips with our questions and our neighbors’ objections. In this episode, Pastor Chad Warren brings both his expertise in apologetics and his own experiences with suffering to the conversation with Mike Schutt, as they consider how to think well about suffering.

  • Redeeming Reality TV?

    25 JUL 2023 · Reality TV is here to stay. Once dismissed by many as a passing fad, it has became a true institution.

Mike Tiland, Worldview Academy Faculty member and Director of Camps, sees Reality Television as an often-helpful window into the secular culture. He joins host Mike Schutt in this episode to try to sort out the mess.
