88. Dr. Stan Wallace – Transformation: Making Sense of the Soul, Brain, Heart, and Spirit

Welcome to Episode #88 of the Red Ink Revival Leadership Podcast. Today’s conversation is with theologian, philosopher, and apologist Dr. Stan Wallace.

Dr. Wallace is the President and CEO of Global Scholars, an organization that equips Christian professors to serve Christ in secular universities worldwide. He has nearly 200 articles published in professional and ministry journals on engaging the mind and culture. He is co-host of the Thinking Christianly podcast with philosopher and theologian J.P. Moreland, a must listen for everyone desiring to have a “thinking” faith. He is also host of the College Faith podcast which explores the intersection of Christian conviction and higher education.

Our conversation takes us into the following:

  • Stan’s story of faith in Christ from New Age to atheism to a meaningful faith in Christ.

  • Reflecting on spiritual mentorship and interactions with philosophers Dr. Dallas Willard and Dr. J.P. Moreland.

  • Navigating the secular culture and hot topics while holding faith and evangelism.

  • What Global Scholars is and how Stan leads the organization.

  • The special podcasts Stan hosts: College Faith and Thinking Christianly.

  • Stan’s amazing reflections of a famous open debate he hosted between Christian Dr. William Lane Craig and atheist Antony Flew.

  • Clarifying and defining the soul, heart, spirit, and mind, both theologically and philosophically.

  • How understanding the soul impacts the way we feel, connect, and experience life.

  • How to appropriately metabolize theological and philosophical ideas that Aristotle and Plato propagated.

  • The important differences between the mind and the brain.

  • How the different parts of the brain and their functions interact with the immaterial soul.

  • Where the new birth (salvation) takes place within the soul.

  • A definition and understanding of what it means to become like Christ in our soul’s capacities.

  • What the heart is, and how it is the energy source for healthy and unhealthy behavior.
