In this episode of Author Talks with Shaun Tabatt, I speak with Chris Sinkinson about ‘Time Travel to the Old Testament: An Essential Companion for the Christian Explorer’ (P & R Publishing, 2014) and ‘Backchat: Answering Christianity’s Critics’ (Christian Focus, 2014).

About Time Travel to the Old Testament:
While both the Old and New Testaments are part of our Christian heritage, the Old Testament can feel particularly foreign and mysterious. Its violence is startling; its heroes flawed; its history complex; and its locations a far cry from Kansas. While no one needs to become an archeological expert to grasp the message of Scripture, background information can deepen our appreciation and understanding as we read. In this wide-ranging, lively introduction to the world of the Old Testament, Sinkinson gives an overview of storytelling techniques, laws, people, beliefs, and geography, removing misunderstandings by putting details in their historical context.
You wish you had an answer, now you do. Sinkinson tackles dodgy science and Christian urban myths whilst reminding us that Christians are not called to win arguments but hearts.
- Darwin’s death bed conversion – truth or myth?
- Is God a moral monster?
- Is this really the God particle?
- Is the Bible an immoral book?
- Who was Jesus?
