Interview With Wesley Huff on Faith and Apologetics
I recently had the opportunity to talk to Wesley Huff, a fellow Canadian apologist, about his faith journey and current ministry. Wes ministers on campus with Power to Change and is also a doctoral student at the University of Toronto. Make sure to check out his blog.
Wes has an amazing testimony, including a healing from paralysis. But is faith is not just based on experience. Wes is a deep thinker, whoo is especially interested in New Testament studies. I think you will enjoy our conversation.
Wes recommended the following books:
- Saving Truth: Finding Meaning and Clarity in a Post-Truth World by Abdu Murray
- Gospel Witness: Defending and Extending the Kingdom of God by Joseph Boot
- Bibles: An Illustrated History from Papyrus to Print by Christopher de Hamel
The recommend audiobook for this episode is Saving Truth.
Increasingly, Western culture embraces confusion as a virtue and decries certainty as a sin. Those who are confused about sexuality and identity are viewed as heroes. Those who are confused about morality are progressive pioneers. Those who are confused about spirituality are praised as tolerant. Conversely, those who express certainty about any of these issues are seen as bigoted, oppressive, arrogant, or intolerant.
This cultural phenomenon led the compilers of the Oxford English Dictionary to name “post-truth” their word of the year in 2016. How can Christians offer truth and clarity to a world that shuns both?
By accurately describing the Culture of Confusion and how it has affected our society, author Abdu Murray seeks to awaken Westerners to the plight we find ourselves in. He also challenges Christians to consider how they have played a part in fostering the Culture of Confusion through bad arguments, unwise labeling, and emotional attacks.
Ultimately, Saving Truth provides arguments from a Christian perspective for the foundations of truth and how those foundations apply to sexuality, identity, morality, and spirituality. For those enmeshed in the culture of confusion, the book offers a way to untangle oneself and find hope in the clarity that Christ offers.
