Presented by Justin Brierley. Brought to you in partnership with PremierSPCK & NTWrightOnline 

Listeners ask questions on which Bible translations are best and Tom’s own translation of scripture ‘The Bible For Everyone’.

What makes a good translation, why doesn’t Tom capitalise ‘holy spirit’, and what does he make of Pope Francis ‘changing’ the Lords’ Prayer?
In the wake of two high profile Christians who have renounced their faith, Tom responds to listener questions on what defines being a Christian, whether we can lose our salvation, and what to do when a loved one cannot respond to the Gospel because of dementia.

Tom also talks about his new book ‘History and Eschatology’ based on his 2018 Gifford Lectures.
In a one–year anniversary special of the show, Justin and Tom are joined by Australian Bible scholar Mike Bird to talk about their major new collaborative book ‘The New Testament in its World: An introduction to the history, literature and theology of the first Christians’.
In this interview with NT Wright from The Profile podcast, Justin Brierley interviews Tom about his life and faith, as well as his theology of atonement in his book The Day The Revolution Began.
Am I unequally yoked to my wife? What’s the biblical view of singleness? Was Jesus at my mother’s deathbed? What’s the point of it all? Tom answers the personal, pastoral and puzzled questions of listeners.
An atheist listener asks a question about free will and the problem of evil. Will it be possible for there to be another ‘fall’ in the new creation? And the hosts of the Libertarian Christian Podcast have some questions for Tom about living as Christians in today’s world.
How should Christians think about the place of Israel today? Do the Jewish people still have a distinct role in God’s purposes? The Bible says Jesus will return ‘soon’, so why hasn’t he?

These and more listener questions get addressed by Tom Wright in this episode.
How does the doctrine of the Trinity work? Do you have to believe it to be a Christian? Where do you find it in the Bible? What does Tom think about the doctrine of baptism?

These and more listener questions get addressed by Tom Wright in this episode.
What is the nature of hell and what does Tom believe about it? What about annihilationist or universalist views? Can we be happy in heaven if we know that loved ones won’t be there?

These and more listener questions get addressed by Tom Wright in this episode.

What happens to those who don’t believe in Jesus? What can I say to my New Age sister? My Muslim friend gets so much comfort from her faith... do I need to evangelise her?
