Straight Thinking Highlights

We’re taking a break from the usual Today’s New Reason to Believe format to bring you highlights from Kenneth Samples’ podcast, Straight Thinking. As RTB’s resident philosopher/theologian, Kenneth fulfills the important task of keeping the ministry’s science apologetics grounded in sound logic and solid theology. Through Straight Thinking, he applies critical thinking and the historic Christian worldview to a unique range of topics from the Trinity to American current affairs.
