Simon Ponsonby: From butcher to preacher

April 26, 2019

Premier’s Ian Britton sits down with the Christian author and international speaker Simon Ponsonby on this week’s show. Growing up, Simon was aware of a strong spiritual heritage and can remember attending Exclusive Brethren church services. Later in life, he “lost the plot” and turned away from God. “My most intense prayers were the girls I’d slept with wouldn’t get pregnant”, he remembers. In this in-depth interview, Simon reveals how a series of “God incidents” led to an “immediate transformation” in his life. Today, Simon is passionate about teaching on the centrality of the cross and the Gospel.
