Al Kresta interviews me on Christianity in the Holy Land

It’s always a pleasure to be interviewed by Al Kresta from Ave Maria Radio.

In this interview, released on January 12th, we shift over to the central topic of Arab Evangelicals in Israel  and, indeed, Christianity in general in the whole region.

The opening question: does Christianity in the Middle East have a future? Listen and enjoy.

Al Fadi interviews Duane Miller, Pt 2

Al Fadi, from CIRA International, interviews me more on my research on converts from Islam to Christianity. Here is a second installation for his excellent podcast “Let us Reason.”

The first question is about the main challenge faced by ex-Muslim Christians. Guess what? It’s not persecution. If you want to know what it is, listen along. Also, want to hear about what a baptism looks like at an Iranian church? Listen along. Finally, how do congregations of ex-Muslim Christians form new convert identities for their believers? Listen along.

I also talk about our years in Nazareth and the founding of Nazareth Evangelical Theological Seminary (NETS).

The original podcast was issued on January 7th of 2017, but here it is again for all of you. Do visit the website for CIRA International, which stands for The Center of Islamic Research and Awareness.

Al Fadi interviews Duane Miller, Pt 1

I had the pleasure to be interviewed by Al Fadi, founder and president of The Center for Islamic Research & Awareness (CIRA International).

In this interview Al Fadi, host of the “Let us Reason” podcast, asks me about my new book Living among the Breakage: Contextual Theology-making and ex-Muslim Christians (or here for the Kindle version).

The interview begins with Al Fadi asking me about my own conversion to Christianity, and then about what motivated me to learn about Islam and then research religious conversion from Islam to Christianity. Here the great story about a church of MBBs that was planted accidentally! (At 14 minutes or so.) Near the end he asks about the main factor that attracts some Muslims to the Christian faith.

The podcast was published on December 31st of 2016. You can find the original at iTunes, or just listen to it right here:

Early Church 5: Discerning the New Testament Canon

The Church was born in the 4th decade AD, but not until near the end of the 4th century AD do we have a single canon of apostolic, inspired writings being used by the churches throughout Africa, Asia and Europe. Why did the Church decide a canon was needed? And how was the process carried out? These are the questions we will explore in this lecture.
