    You should so interview Matt from MandM.

    Another fantastic and informative interview. John Stonestreet gives a clear and cogent explanation and justification for a worldview approach to apologetics, particularly in the 16-25 year age group.

    I would love to be part of something like this in Australia.

    Thanks again.

    I would dearly like to quote John where he was talking about how Christians should not add to the "cultural clamor and noise" by creating Christianized versions of secular life. Rather we need to enter the existing culture and give clarity and direction (something like that).

    Where in the interview does that occur?

    Yes, that was good. As for where it is in the interview, I don't have the timecode for that. That's going to need to be a manual 'find-it' task, I'm afraid.

    Hi Roger. The sentiment you expressed –
    (I would love to be a part of something like this in Australia)- I completely understand and agree with you. 2 friends and I attended Summit camp in the US and we all agreed that a ministry of that sort (worldview, apologetics & culture analysis) is exactly what our fellow Australians need. I know many of my peers could do with listening to the things that people like John Stonestreet have to say. I hope to get a big summit conference event organized here in South Australia some time in the next couple of years; and get along as many young people as possible.

    Best to you, it is good to read of other Aussies interested in worldview 🙂
