What the Next Generation of Christians Needs (With David French)
Host Curtis Chang and regular guest David French discuss what young Christians need to be formed for thriving. In this far ranging conversation, they explore negative partisanship, the fruits of the spirit, the revival at Asbury, and how Christians should best interact with the world through politics. Also, Curtis describes how anxiety is a surprising underlying cause of the political acrimony and divisiveness that plagues our culture today. This special Good Faith podcast was recorded in front of a live audience at The Council for Christian Colleges & Universities, a higher education association of more than 185 Christian institutions around the world.

Bush administrations, as Deputy Director of Speechwriting and later Director of the Office of Strategic Initiatives for President George W. Bush.

The Spirituality of ChatGPT (with Andy Crouch)
New technology seems to be revolutionizing our world on a daily basis. ChatGPT — which has been used by more than a million people — might replace internet search engines and possibly your job. How should Christians deal with these machines that can communicate facts, create business plans, and do homework at the push of a button?
Hinge Moments: What to Do When Life Changes
In life, we have moments in which opportunities present the possibility of dramatic change. Dr. Michael Lindsay, president of Gordon College, calls these instances “hinge moments,” since a hinge can either shut or close a door leading to very different pathways in our lives.
What is Courage?
In this podcast, David and Curtis return from trips around the world to give us a philosophical insight on courage. From Churchill to Lord of The Rings, stories of virtue can influence our own actions when tests cross our paths. They talk about the power of narratives and how they can build moral courage and character. Both dig into their past to bring up personal models of strength that have influenced who they are today. They wrap up with a critical look at political institutions under this moral framework.

Welcoming the Refugee and Immigrant, with Pastor Eric Costanzo
This week David and Curtis are joined by Eric Costanzo, a Southern Baptist pastor from Tulsa, Oklahoma who has led his own congregation in the practice of welcoming refugees and immigrants in their community. Eric is also the co-author of the book “Inalienable: How Marginalized Kingdom Voices Can Help Save the American Church”. Join us for this challenging discussion that, based on the number of times it’s mentioned in scripture (plus Jesus’ own experience as a displaced refugee), is an issue near to God’s own heart.

“This is a thoughtful and valuable discussion on Christian faithfulness in a culture of craziness at the extremes and an exhausted majority in the middle. It speaks to the opposite temptations to either withdraw from the battle or try to win the battle. Good Faith podcast is one of my favorite sources of honest, relevant engagement with church and societal issues.” – Bob Fryling
