3:20 – Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design
Just a few months before the 150th anniversary of Darwin’s Origin of Species, a Zogby poll reveals that most Americans support the theory of Intelligent Design. Dr. Stephen Meyer, a scientist and director of the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture, says the increase in support for ID is related to new discoveries of complexities in the cell. As scientists learn more about the DNA digital code, it’s hard to deny the existence of intelligence behind the origin of life. Dr. Meyer is here to explain why neo-Darwinism cannot survive recent biological discoveries. Meyer’s comprehensive, ground-breaking argument turns the materialists’ claim that “science has disproved God” on its head.

4:20 – The New Shape of World Christianity: How American Experience Reflects Global Faith
Mark Noll is back with us to revisit the history of the American church in the context of world events. He makes the compelling case that how Americans have come to practice the Christian faith is just as globally important as what the American church has done in the world. He backs up this substantial claim with the scholarly attentiveness we've come to expect from him, lucidly explaining the relationship between the development of Christianity in North America and the development of Christianity in the rest of the world, with attention to recent transfigurations in world Christianity. In this interview, we will challenge your assumptions about the nature of the relationship between the American church and the global church in the past and predict what world Christianity may look like in the future.
