A bit of a twist today as we answer listener's questions that have come in asking: are we meant to take Satan literally? Join Tom Wright as he unravels some of the intricate threads of the New and Old Testaments to uncover the biblical portrayal of the devil. We're looking at some of the questions and looking at biblical passages where Jesus confronts and challenges the forces of darkness, asking what role does the Devil play in affecting ministry and what power does Satan really have? Do we over-think the devil and the supernatural when we avoid heavy metal music, particular pop stars or ban Harry Potter books - where is the line between genuine caution and a kind of 'satanic panic'? What practices should we avoid that should be recognised as 'evil'? And remembering Jesus' ultimate defeat of Satan and death on the cross. Enjoy this thought-provoking discussion that we hope sheds some light on this complex and often misunderstood (or sometimes avoided) topic of 'evil', 'satan' and 'the devil'.

Tom answers listener questions about the Old Testament. Can the truly trust the Old Testament? When was it all written? Is the Old Testament more spiritual metaphor or natural history? How do we make sense of the Old Testament teachings in light of the 'new law' of the New Testament - don't they contradict each other?

Tom hits it out of the park on this one! His explanation of Luther's motivations in his understanding of Galatians is so helpful.

NT Wright's commentary on race was spot on. The church has work to do, if we want to partner with Christ's vision for us.

I'm a HUGE fan of the show and Tom Wright. When I say that this particular episode "blessed my soul", consider it to be an understatement. I truly admire and am grateful for how Mr. Wright expresses this glorious gospel. it reminds me of my parents who were both members of the clergy. you all possess this "je ne sais quoi" and speak in such a compelling tone to draw listeners to Christ. Thank you all for what you do. [Illinois, USA]
