Unbelievable? engages in fundamental questions on Christianity with the intention to openly discuss different opinions between Christians and non-believers. Each Saturday, in the award-winning programme Unbelievable, Justin Brierley asks questions like:

Is there evidence for God? Can we trust the Bible? Did Jesus rise from the dead?

Justin tackles these and other issues, on a show that gets Christians and non-believers talking to each other.
