1. Dirt Naps Are For The Living. In this episode, we wrap up our discussion of Robert Capon’s, The Foolishness of Preaching, focusing on preaching forgiveness, insisting that the dead reform their deadness, and the consequences of high anthropology.
  2. Welcome to the Church, Can I Take Your Order? In this episode, we discuss Clement of Rome on the Church, especially good order, fruits of faith, and why the congregation at Corinth shouldn’t run off its pastors.
  3. Only briefly distracted by another Christmas rant, Craig and Troy return to the book of Timothy to examine the qualifications of a deacon of the church
  4. In 1 Timothy 2, Paul sets out to describe how the church service is conducted and structured. What is governing principle for both?
  5. God Doesn’t Do Prophet-sharing. In this episode, we discuss Gerhard von Rad’s explanation of a prophet’s freedom and lack of choice regarding his call and proclamation. What’s at stake for preachers, and all Christians, when God calls us to speak a specific word, to a specific people, at a specific time according to his decision?
  6. We Are Live! In this episode, we recorded a live show at the Here We Still Stand 2022 conference, so of course, we read Nietzsche and discussed salvation.
  7. Do You Read The Bible? What’s Your Secret? In this episode, we discuss how to understand the Bible from Matthias Flacius’ book, How to Understand the Sacred Scriptures.
  8. It’s A Bittersweet, Scientific Symphony of Atheism. In this episode, we discuss Josh McDowell’s book, More Than A Carpenter, and the topic of belief, science, and atheism. Do science and faith contradict one another? Is atheism a reasonable position over-against belief in God?
  9. Liar, Liar, Jesus Is A Lunatic? In this episode, we read More Than A Carpenter by Josh McDowell. We discuss the cultural-historical argument that Jesus was either a good moral teacher or a prophet, or whether he was a liar, lunatic, or Lord.
  10. Does God Care Whether We’re Good or Bad? We conclude our discussion of Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis. If Christians live in enemy territory, as Lewis writes, how does that affect the defense of our faith? Do we have free will, and why would God give us free will if he knew we’d eat from Eden’s tree? What does conscience have to do with our relationship with God and one another?
  11. Let’s Fight! In this episode, we read and discuss C.S. Lewis’ popular book: Mere Christianity. What do Christians believe? How do we discuss religion, good and evil, God and the devil, and why Christianity isn’t something anyone would ever think to invent?
