Jonathan Lyonhart – Monothreeism (Trinity at the Pub)
Episode: In this episode Chris Tilling interviews Jonathan Lyonhart about his new book, MonoThreeism: An Absurdly Arrogant Attempt to Answer All the Problems of the Last 2000 Years in One Night at a Pub. This is one unique book! By using the genre of a script with stage performance cues and three main protagonists, Lyonhart presents an elegant, witty, and clever case for the Trinity as the key to engaging the most significant challenges to Christian faith. In fact, by means of the character Idi, thirteen objections to Christian faith are listed and then tackled, but not in a way that you might expect. In a conversational yet philosophically sophisticated manner, the book covers such ground as the Trinity, the incarnation, the nature of free will and responsibility, the problem of the soul and the problem of evil, world religions, Feuerbach, morality, patriarchy, and more besides!
Guest: Jonathan Lyonhart received his PhD from Cambridge University, and is now Assistant Professor of Theology and Philosophy at Lincoln Christian University, as well as a Fellow at the Cambridge Centre for the Study of Platonism and a Co-Host of the Spiritually Incorrect Podcast. He’s the author of MonoThreeism: An Absurdly Arrogant Attempt to Answer All the Problems of the Last 2000 Years in One Night at a Pub.
