From Fundamentalist Christian to Agnostic Atheist

From Fundamentalist Christian to Agnostic Atheist

A conversion testimonial of an ex-fundamentalist preacher who gradually drifted from fundamentalism to atheism. This eye opening testimony takes you through his journey through the rugged mental terrain that led to a total break from fundamentalism. His insightful testimony provides keys to successfully dialogue with Christians.

James Peter Jandu travelled for two decades as a fundamentalist Christian preacher. As an author, speaker and online radio host he was interviewed numerous times on Christian TV. He also pastored a Church for ten years. For seven years he organised an annual three day Church workers and Leaders conference in Kerala, South India attended by hundreds.
Today his work reaches out to fundamentalists within religious circles, including Muslim, Hindu, with an emphasis on Christian fundamentalists. He believes religions should be revamped to be more inclusive and sensitive to modern society by re-examining why they believe what they believe and endeavour to better understand their scriptures by viewing them through rational lenses.
Door 10.30, £5 in advance, £2 concs./Free to Ethical Society members.

    I enjoyed the talk, and good to have a bit of humour at what is often a humourless topic.

    Some interesting stuff discussed, but I was distracted by the continuous belittling, condescension and generalisations about Christians (as was touched upon by one of the audience questions). I was hoping to hear a bit more about the speaker's journey into atheism but this wasn't a prominent part of the talk. I found the Q/A section a little disappointing because there seemed to be little in the way of questions, but a lot of people talking. Firmer moderation may have helped.

      I found the Q n A quite interesting, so,, given your criticism, what was your question/statement that was so much better than the others.?
