Idol Talk. In this episode, we return to Simone Weil’s book, Gravity and Grace. Idolatry is the topic of conversation. What is an idol? In what ways does idolatry infiltrate our churches, and what are the consequences? How do we guard against it?
The Right Man for The Job. In this episode, we finish reading and discussing Leo the Great’s Lenten sermon about Christ’s two natures. What happens when the old Adam adds to Scripture’s witness to Jesus’ two natures?
I like to think of Jesus as a mischievous badger. Gillespie and Riley again read and discuss C.S. Lewis' The Joyful Christian. This episode, the Incarnation. Do we go far enough with Jesus' incarnation, to where He wants us to go with him?
Two Natures and Maximum Effort! Riley and Gillespie continue to talk about Athanasius’ “On The Incarnation”, but this week they get into the historical, bodily resurrection of Jesus, and why Jesus’ resurrection upends our search for self-discovery and meaning.
Two Natures and Maximum Effort! Riley and Gillespie talk about Athanasius’ apology in his writing, “On The Incarnation”, for the historical, bodily death of Jesus, and why Jesus’ death and resurrection is the end of religion.
