Doug Groothuis on BBC Radio

The BBC radio program, "Beyond Belief," will feature a half hour segment on religion and the Internet on its July 20 show. I am one of three panel members, which include a Rabbi and a man who found a cyber-church, St. Pixels. The latter gentleman and I had some disagreements. I recorded the program at 7:00 AM (not the Curmudgeon's favorite hour for social commentary) at the KUVO-FM studies in downtown Denver. (This is my favorite station [jazz!], so it was fun to be there and meet Rodney Franks, a radio host.) We had a satellite connection to Britain, where the host and two other fellows were talking. We recorded over forty minutes, but only about 27 will be used of that amount. There is also a three minute story.

Let me know what you think.

I listened and enjoyed your contributions to the Radio 4 programme aired today. My sentiments often chimed with your comments although I would not have been able to articulate them so clearly and poignantly. I am a Clinical Psychologist who is a lapsed but still curious Christian who is earnestly trying to find an expression of and vocabulary for my faith that enables my intellect to remain engaged. I am thinking that your thoughts and writing might help me in that quest so I will check out some of the stuff you have put together. Best wishes, Dan

Let me know if I can do anything to help you. Some have drifted away from Christianity because the church did not offer solid intellectual answers, even though they are out there. Of course, there are other reasons, too.
