Burning Questions is a documentary series that explores a wide range of “life’s big questions.” Our host, Dr. Andy Bannister of Ravi Zachariah International Ministries, leads us on an intriguing journey of discovery through a diverse variety of different world views and Christian perspectives.
Although Dr. Bannister is a Christian Apologist, Burning Questions takes a balanced and unassuming approach in its exploration for truth. Each world view is given a voice through interviews with leading Atheists, and renowned Christian philosophers, along with representatives of the most popular world religions and faith traditions including Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Unitarian Universalism.
Insights from these best-selling authors, global debaters and leaders in their fields, present compelling evidence and arguments, but in the end, ultimately it is left to the viewer, to follow the evidence where it leads and come to their own conclusions.
Episode 1 - Is there a God? Is the universe just the results of atoms evolving, resulting from a “Big Bang”, or is there a higher power out there. Ultimately, in either circumstance, does it really matter?
Episode 2 - God and Science? Some would say that God and science are a dichotomy. Some would say that science disproves God, while others say science is continuing proof that God exists. Has Science replaced God?
Episode 3 - Good and Evil? What is good and what is evil? Are there any moral absolutes? How do we determine what is right and what is wrong? Why do bad things happen to good people?
Episode 4 - Too Many Choices? In a world where choice is king, how do you choose from the thousands of world religions? Don’t all religions ultimately believe in the same God, and lead to the same destination?
Episode 5 - Can the Bible be Trusted? It’s the least read, best-selling book of all time. Some say it’s just a collection of myths and stories. Others say it’s based on truth, but has been corrupted over time. Many say the Bible is the inspired Word of God to man. How can we ultimately know if the Bible can be trusted?
Episode 6 - Who was Jesus? To some his name is part of everyday conversation, either as a curse word or in religious reverence, but never has one man had such a significant impact on history, as the one called Jesus. Did he even exist, was he just a good man, a prophet or even God himself?
