Know anyone who has gone through a “deconversion?” They believed the Bible, followed Jesus, but now they’ve abandoned their faith? Dr. John Marriott joins us to talk about this well-publicized trend. Why do people walk away? And what can you do as a family member or friend to help the person who says they’re happier as an unbeliever? Join us for Chris Fabry Live.
John Marriott is the director of the Biola University Centers for Intercultural Studies, located in Switzerland, Thailand, and Los Angeles. He also teaches in the Philosophy and Intercultural Studies departments at Biola, and in the Department of Christian Ministry and Leadership at Talbot School of Theology. He is the author of The Anatomy of Deconversion and A Recipe for Disaster: Four Ways Parents and Churches Prepare Individuals to Lose Their Faith. A former pastor, John is originally from Canada, but he now calls Los Angeles home with his wife, Nancy, and their two children.
Chris Fabry is the host of Chris Fabry Live, one hour of spiritual encouragement from his backyard radio fence. The program challenges listeners to think biblically about their spiritual journeys. Chris is also the author of the Christy Award-winning novel Dogwood, June Bug, ECPA Christian Book Award-winner (Fiction) Almost Heaven, Not in the Heart and Borders of the Heart. He and his family live near Tucson, Ariz.
Chris Fabry Live is designed to build up the spiritual immune system of the Christian men and woman. As you walk through the journey of faith called the Christian life, you meet new people, learn new things, laugh, cry and, most importantly, grow in your understanding of God.
