The Inquisition is a light-hearted conversation that takes the Christian faith very seriously. It’s more comfy chair than thumbscrews, but we have a bucket of ice-cold water on hand just to keep the guests on their toes.
Season 1 has twelve episodes, and we kick off with a double header. Writer and Comedian, Paul Kerensa and Spy-turned, Bishop Nick Baines.
Paul Kerensa with a Spirited Defence of Charles Dickens
James Cary talks to comedian, writer and broadcaster Paul Kerensa. Paul loves Christmas and successfully saves Charles Dickens’s Christmas Carol from the flames, but places one of literature’s great masterpieces on the Papal Index. Paul has also written ‘Joe’s Bros and the Bus that Goes’ for children available now from SPCK. Shownotes and links here.
