Those are Burning Questions, the answers to which have profound implications because they effect so many other areas of life: for instance, whether or not life has meaning, purpose or hope. Yet, too often, attempts to talk about these questions is marred by a clash of fundamentalisms, by extremists (religious or secular) simply yelling or trying to outsmart each other.

Is there a better way to have discourse on these questions that really do matter? Join Dr. Andy Bannister as he tries to do just that—journeying across three countries—talking to a wide range of experts—people of all faiths and none—in search of some clarity. Whether you’re a skeptic or a seeker, a doubter or a disciple, Burning Questions will encourage you to listen well, think deeply and to follow the evidence where it leads.

Episode 1: Is There a God?

Perhaps the biggest burning question of them all is this one: Are we alone in a meaningless, purposeless universe or is there some kind of creator – some kind of higher power out there? That’s a hotly debated question. On the one hand, our culture has recently seen a resurgent atheism whose advocates tell us that anyone who even professes belief in a deity is simply insane and irrational. Yet for all of that, belief in God seems alive and well. Over 90% of people in the world say they do believe in a higher power. The question simply will not go away: Is there a God?

Episode 2: God & Science


Since the scientific revolution kicked off in the 16th and 17th centuries, we’ve seen tremendous advances across the disciplines of science in physics, chemistry, and biology. So successful has science been, so rapidly has it advanced, that many people believe that science has simply pushed God out of the picture. Indeed, one Oxford professor said to me, “The question is a simple one – hasn’t science buried God?”

Episode 3: The Problem of Evil


Just over 100 years ago, the Titanic was about the depart on her maiden voyage. The docks at Southampton were full and packed with people. Little did they know that four days later the Titanic would ram into an iceberg and sink tragically with a loss of 2,500 lives. Whatever our worldview whether we are Atheist, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindus, Christians — whatever it is that you believe, disasters raise the question “why?” Why, in particular, do bad things happen to good people?

Episode 4: Which Religion is True?

Toronto is one of the most multi-cultural cities that you’ll find on planet earth. Here you’ll find people from every culture, country, religion, and belief system that you could imagine. The huge diversity of religions that exists raises a profound question. Even if you have concluded that there is some kind of higher power out there, which religion do you choose?

Episode 5: Can We Trust the Bible?

The Bible has been the best selling book of all time — selling millions upon millions of copies each year. Meanwhile numerous regimes and countries around the world have tried to ban it from their borders. Thousands of Christians have spent time in jail or have faced execution for simple crime of trying smuggle the Bible into those countries. The Bible has inspired devotion and it’s inspired fear. But behind all that lies a much bigger question.
Is the Bible just a collection of myths, legends, and fairytales for children? Or is there more to it than that? Is the Bible reliable? Join Dr. Andy bannister as he addresses the question: Can we trust the Bible?

Episode 6: Who was Jesus?

Throughout history hundred of thousands of Christians have faced torture, persecution, and arrests for what they believe about Jesus. What is it about one man’s teaching and one man’s claims that could inspire such devotion and commitment from people? In short, who was Jesus?
