Ronald P. Byars discuses “Believer on Sunday, Atheist by Thursday” On Union Matters! Podcast

“Regular worshipers may be believers on Sunday but (nearly) atheists by Thursday. The general public, not making fine distinctions, lumps mainline Protestants together with fundamentalists fighting to hold on to a privileged status already lost. Circumstances favor religious skeptics, who find themselves with rising influence. Church members in mainline denominations feel caught between a rock and a hard place. Thus comes the critical question of the moment: is Christian faith of an intellectually serious and recognizably generous sort still possible? Union Presbyterian Seminary Professor Emeritus of Preaching and Worship Ronald P Byars’s new book “Believer on Sunday, Atheist by Thursday” invites readers to explore basic questions about faith itself, and classically inclined Christian faith in particular.”
