Every Christian Is an Apologist Now (Part 1), with Timothy Paul Jones and Garrick Bailey
Three Chords and the Truth: The Apologetics Podcast
by Timothy Paul Jones and Garrick Bailey
8M ago
In this thrilling two-part episode of The Apologetics Podcast, Garrick and Timothy go back to the future. Or, perhaps more precisely, they go back to the second century for the sake of the future. In the book The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self, theologian Carl Trueman points out that the church's challenges of the second century A.D. provide one possible precedent for the struggles that Christians are facing in the present era. With that in mind, Garrick and Timothy travel back in time to see what contemporary Christians might learn from a second-century apologist named Aristides of Athen ..read more

How Bible Literacy Provides a Defense of the Faith, with Jen Wilkin
Three Chords and the Truth: The Apologetics Podcast
by Timothy Paul Jones and Garrick Bailey
8M ago
In this episode, your intrepid cohosts learn why they need to get literate. "Bible literate," to be exact. According to author and Bible teacher Jen Wilkin, Bible literacy is a vital tool when it comes to apologetics—and "Bible literacy" is not the same thing as "biblical literacy."  Biblical literacy means knowing about the Bible. Bible literacy requires knowing the Bible itself, and Bible literacy is part of what every Christian needs to be able to defend the faith. In the process of getting themselves some Bible literateness, Garrick Bailey and Timothy Paul Jones talk with Jen Wilkin a ..read more

How to Know God Exists, with Josh McDowell
Three Chords and the Truth: The Apologetics Podcast
by Timothy Paul Jones and Garrick Bailey
1y ago
If they made apologetics action figures, Josh McDowell would be one of the figures in the first set. If they made apologetics trading cards, Josh McDowell’s card would be in a collectible foil pack. He has toured with the pioneering Christian rock band Petra, and his book Evidence that Demands a Verdict was selected by Christianity Today as the thirteenth most influential Christian book published after the Second World War. Now, he’s here with us on this very special episode of The Apologetics Podcast. In 1991, "Losing My Religion" by R.E.M. was at the top of the pop charts, and Timothy was lo ..read more

Apatheism, Mormonism, and Theological Shoegazing, with Kyle Beshears
Three Chords and the Truth: The Apologetics Podcast
by Timothy Paul Jones and Garrick Bailey

Welcome to the Apathetic Episode of The Apologetics Podcast! An episode focused on apathy probably seems appropriate to all of you who have noticed how apathetic Garrick and Timothy have been about releasing new episodes for the past few months. But that wasn’t actually due to anyone’s apathy! It was because Timothy needed to finish writing a new apologetics book entitled In Church as It Is in Heaven, which InterVarsity Press will release in June 2023.  Now that the book manuscript is in the publisher’s hands, the Apologetics Podcast is back and better and more apathetic than ever!&n ..read more

Huey Lewis and the News: The Holy Trinity and “The Power of Love”
Three Chords and the Truth: The Apologetics Podcast
by Timothy Paul Jones and Garrick Bailey
1y ago
Garrick Bailey and Timothy Paul Jones have already devoted one entire episode of this podcast to love. That was when they discussed Foreigner’s 1984 hit “I Want to Know What Love Is.”  But Garrick and Timothy are far too full of love to fit all of their feelings about love into a single episode.  That’s why they’re joining forces with Huey Lewis to talk about love again in this special Three Chords and the Truth episode of The Apologetics Podcast. Along the way, the dynamic duo discusses the history of Huey Lewis and the News, Augustine of Hippo, the Trinity, and the widespread conte ..read more

Abortion, Apologetics, and the End of Roe v. Wade
Three Chords and the Truth: The Apologetics Podcast
by Timothy Paul Jones and Garrick Bailey
1y ago
  “The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives.” With those words, the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that declared a federal constitutional right to abortion. So what now? How should churches respond to this ruling? How can this decision be turned into an opportunity for apologetics? And what's been the historical perspective of Christians when it comes to abortion? That's what Garrick Bailey and Timothy Paul Jone ..read more

by Timothy Paul Jones and Garrick Bailey

Did the Council of Nicaea Choose the Books of the Bible? Garrick Bailey and Timothy Paul Jones
Three Chords and the Truth: The Apologetics Podcast
by Timothy Paul Jones and Garrick Bailey
2y ago
The books of the Bible were selected in the year 325 at the Council of Nicaea, right? That's what a lot of Christians seem to think. But is this story true?  If it isn't true, how did the tale of a council that created the canon begin in the first place? Those are the questions that your intrepid cohosts Garrick Bailey and Timothy Paul Jones explore in this episode. As with almost every explanation that Garrick and Timothy give, the answer turns out to be far weirder than you ever imagined. It involves a prayer, a table, and books that fall miraculously onto the floor. Also, it entails Ti ..read more
