  • Dr. Jerry L. Walls — Author of Heaven, Hell & Purgatory: Rethinking The Things That Matter Most
    Will heaven be boring? How can a good and loving God send people to hell? Is there such a place as purgatory? If so, why is it necessary, if we’re saved by grace? Questions about the afterlife abound. Given what is at stake, they are the most important questions we will ever consider. Recent years have seen a surge of Christian books written by people claiming to have received a glimpse of the afterlife, and numerous books, films, and TV shows have apocalyptic or post-apocalyptic themes. Jerry Walls, a dynamic writer and expert on the afterlife, distills his academic writing on heaven, hell, and purgatory to offer clear biblical, theological, and philosophical grounding for thinking about these issues. He provides an ecumenical account of purgatory that is compatible with Protestant theology and defends the doctrine of eternal hell. Walls shows that the Christian vision of the afterlife illumines the deepest and most important issues of our lives, changing the way we think about happiness, personal identity, morality, and the very meaning of life.
    *Jerry L. Walls (PhD, University of Notre Dame), a world-class expert on the afterlife and a sought-after speaker, has appeared on NPR's Talk of the Nation and in the documentary film Hellbound. Walls, professor of philosophy and scholar in residence at Houston Baptist University in Houston, Texas, is the coauthor of Why I Am Not a Calvinist and the Christianity Today Book Award Winner Good God: The Theistic Foundations of Morality. He has authored or edited a dozen books, including a trilogy on the afterlife--Hell: The Logic of Damnation,Purgatory: The Logic of Total Transformation, and Heaven: The Logic of Eternal Joy--and is a senior speaking fellow for the Morris Institute for Human Values.

LIVE! on TDMS - Devoted Souly to the Art of Music

  • This Week's Recording Artist — Danielle Todd
    Maybe the best way to describe Danielle would be by quoting some of her influences:

    "For me, singing sad songs often has a way of healing a situation. It gets the hurt out in the open into the light, out of the darkness." ~ Reba McEntire

    "I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music." ~ Billy Joel

    "I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me-like food or water." ~ Ray Charles

    "If music be the food of love, play on." ~ William Shakespeare

    "It is cruel, you know, that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness of pain: of strength and freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature and everlasting beauty of monotony." ~ Benjamin Britten

    "Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music." ~ Jimi Hendrix

    "One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain." ~ Bob Marley

    "Without music, life would be a mistake." ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Pub Crawl

  • Drew & His Mates Crack Open A Few!

    This week on The Pub Crawl:
    A couple of Drew's good friends - Lara Dewar Laurie & Karl Wirtz


    1/ Around 4:00 AM on a night this week in Toronto where the temperature outside was -20C, a 3-year old boy wandered out of his relative's apartment into the deadly cold wearing only a shirt and diapers. He was found dead later that morning in the yard of a nearby home. So many questions! How did this happen? Who was supervising him? Was this merely a situation that couldn't have been expected/prevented or was this as a result of neglectful child care? And if there is a God, surely God would have intervened and saved an innocent child from slowly freezing to death outside in the middle of the night?

    2/ A Peel Regional police officer was videoed being slapped and hit by two teenage girls, who then simply walked away from her as she tried to hold on. Is it time to ask why “smaller weak people” are being hired to protect our communities? Or have women, in particular, been a good balance to the large, ego driven males that have tended to dominate police forces?

    3/ Students from a Catholic school in San Francisco chose the first day of Lent to protest their church. They're upset with the fact that their teachers are required to adhere to a morality clause, which now includes language that reaffirms the church’s stance against homosexuality, same-sex marriage, abortion, contraceptives and artificial insemination. If a teacher violates or even shows support for these issues, they could be disciplined. Should Catholic school teachers be allowed to express their opinions about these issues, even if they don't align with the Catholic church? Or should Catholic school teachers be... Catholic?
