AHOCT - Interview with Laura Estes
This week's episode looks at something brand new for the podcast, the emergence of Islam from a Christian perspective. Laura Estes studies the period at Saint Louis University and is our guest. We focus on how Christians understood this new religious movement and what that meant for Syriac Christians in the 7th and 8th centuries. It is not exhaustive, but it is an important part of the history of the two major world religions.
AHOCT - Interview with Dr. Phillip Cary
Today's show is an interview Dr. Cary about his new book, "The Meaning of Protestant Theology: Augustine, Luther, and the Gospel which gives us Christ." This is a long awaited discussion after I first read this book over Christmas. We get into some deep theology and philosophy, but all in service of helping Christians understand the surety of their salvation.
AHOCT - Interview with Gavin Ortlund
Today we talk about the doctrine of creation in St. Augustine with Dr. Ortlund. Dr. Ortlund writes about theological retrieval for evangelicals and this work is a work of retrieval for the doctrine of creation. Our conversation sticks mostly to Augustine, his method of interpretation and understanding of humility.
