Up For Debate

Home Promo - Up For Debate

With all the issues facing the church today, Christians must be able to examine divergent views and evaluate them according to Scripture. That’s precisely what Up for Debate, an hour-long, live talk show from Moody Radio, equips believers to do. Each week, host Julie Roys explores debatable issues in the church with two Christian leaders with different perspectives. She also invites listeners to call in and add their thoughts. What results is a lively, thoughtful and informative exchange that challenges Christians to think critically and biblically. 

Up For Debate, a 54-minute program, airs every Saturday at 11 a.m. CT.
