Considering Christianity can be disorienting.

You want to be confident that your view of the world is good, relevant, and true. In order to do that, you need to know whether or not Christianity is worthy of belief.

The trouble is, Christianity is largely viewed as a belief system for the weak, delusional, and uneducated. It can be extremely difficult to break through negativity and stereotypes to explore authentic, historic Christianity.

AT SIDE B STORIES, WE BELIEVE ALL DESERVE TO EXPERIENCE

Stories of skeptics who found Christianity to be reasonable and relevant.

In a story-driven, conversational podcast and a library of videos and testimonies, Jana Harmon interviews former atheists and encourages both skeptics and Christians to consider what motivates thoughtful, intelligent people to move from disbelief to belief.

WE’RE SO GLAD YOU’RE HERE

The more I investigated and probed, the weaker the atheistic worldview appeared to be. I’d hoped it would come out head and shoulders above Christianity.

Peter Byrom

I let other people do the talking as it related to whether I thought Christianity was something worth exploring, rather than letting the Gospel do the talking. That was a slippery slope.

Jeremy Evans

I realized there was something very different about Christians. It wasn’t just that they were nice people with good manners. The difference was that they knew Jesus.

HOW SKEPTICS FLIP THE RECORD OF THEIR LIVES

These interviews demonstrate the importance of truly being open minded. Those who ridiculed Christianity were enlightened to the reality that belief in Christianity is not only rational, but the best explanation for reality.

Each person here has a powerful story to tell about how their thinking fundamentally changed about God, Jesus Christ, life, and reality. My thinking has already been changed and challenged as a committed Christian. I think that skeptics with open minds will find these stories to be real, honest, and challenging.

Finally a faith-based podcast that centers around personal story and redemption in an intellectual way. I’m a fan.

 

Phoebe

Very interesting, thought-provoking, and inspirational interviews.

 

Marsha

Hearing people’s honest past of dealing with issues of life, morality, the existence of God, and the brokenness of the world has been very beneficial to me. The Side B podcast is a balanced exploration of individuals’ views and experiences with God, guided by Jana Harmon’s thoughtful questioning.

Hello, I’m Jana Harmon.

Side B Stories was born from my deep desire to understand how thoughtful, intelligent atheists view Christianity, specifically through the eyes of those whose view of the world has changed dramatically over time.

Through my work, I hope:

N
Atheists can examine Christianity through the lens of former atheists.
N
Skeptics can see that it is possible for intelligent, thoughtful people to believe in God and Christianity.
N
Christians can better understand and engage with those who believe differently than them and explore their faith at a deeper level.
