In this podcast, we want to invite you to read great Christian books with us. We will provide reading plans for works of theology. At the end of each week, we release a podcast that discusses that week’s readings. In this sense, we want to start a theological reading plan for great works of theology.
Episode 29: John Calvin on the True Church (Inst. 4.1)
In this episode, Ian and Wyatt discuss John Calvin's view of the true church. We also talk about his charitable judgment of other Christians and how allergic he was to schism. The Calvin we find here differs from our impressions of him (perhaps). Here, he advises against an "ill-advised zeal for righteousness" and advocates for charitably judging each other.
Episode 28: John Calvin on the Resurrection (Inst. 3.25)
In this episode, Ian and Wyatt talk about the final resurrection in Calvin. And so much more. the body, the soul, philosophy, and glory.
Episode 27: John Calvin on Reprobation (Inst. 3.23)
We talk about how John Calvin sees reprobation as a mystery that we cannot comprehend in contrast to election which is a grace that we can comprehend in Christ.
Episode 26: John Calvin on Predestination (Inst. 3.21–22)
In this episode, Ian and Wyatt tackle Calvin's view of predestination. We affirm that Calvin maintains double predestination, and show a little bit about how he understands the doctrine. Apologies for the bad audio at parts. We are working on fixing Ian's audio!
Episode 25: John Calvin on Prayer (Institutes 3.20)
In this episode, Ian Clary and Wyatt Graham talk about John Calvin and prayer. They also talk about predestination.
Episode 24: The Philosophy of Job with Owen Anderson
