    AHOCT - Interview with Dr. Vince Bantu

    AHOCT - Interview with Dr. Vince Bantu

    Greetings Listeners,

    This week I am pleased to offer to you a conversation I had with church historian and missiologist Dr. Vince Bantu. Our conversation ranges from discussing Dr. Bantu's academic background to his passion for the Gospel and evangelism for people who reject the Gospel as too Western. I hope you enjoy this is as much as I did.

    AAW - St. Cyril of Alexandria - Week 6

    AAW - St. Cyril of Alexandria - Week 6

    We return to my Africans Against the World series this week. I will be finishing up some discussion about monasticism and acedia and then move on to Cyril of Alexandria. Cyril is an extremely important figure in the elucidation of what we mean when we say that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man. Almost any contemporary Christian uses this terminology and it would not exist without Cyril.

    AHOCT - Episode 78 - The Passion of Perpetua and Felicity

    Join us for this episode on a fascinating text which gives us a first hand account of what martyrdom was like for early Christians. Although there was some teaching on this text in the AAW series, we go much more in depth here. I hope you enjoy hearing about the first female writer in Christian history.

    AAW - St. Athanasius of Alexandria - Week 4

    AAW - St. Athanasius of Alexandria - Week 4

    This podcast summarizes some of the major movements of the 4th Century and their affect on St. Athanasius and the African church. St. Athanasius was "against the world" and stood up for what he believed against many emperors who did not want him to lead the church in Alexandria. I forgot to record this live at my church, so I just recorded a version of it at home. Hope you enjoy!

Scholarly and Entertaining

Unfortunately, I’m late to this party. I wish that I had discovered the podcast sooner, but I am slowly making my way through the archives. I highly recommend listening to episodes in the order they were published. That way you won’t miss the continuity of the discussions and the threads that are repeated throughout. I recently finished all of the 2015 season and am looking forward to making my way through the archives to the present. The episode on the Apostles Creed was a highlight for me. I have had a strong desire for a long time to truly understand the origins of my beliefs so I can evaluate and weigh them, and figure out what is orthodoxy and what parts are simply tradition or cultural things I picked up along the way. This podcast is a great resource for achieving that goal. These guys are not only great scholars, but their conversations are really entertaining. I’m so impressed with Chad’s grasp of languages and multiple theological viewpoints, Tom’s grace and ability to teach anything and bring it down to the street level, and Trever’s honesty and masterful use of the word “wicked.” (It does my 80s girl heart good every time he says it) 😊 They’ve got a lot of knowledge between the three of them and great chemistry. Anyway, this is my longwinded way of saying I highly recommend this podcast. My only regret is missing the live recording and hope there will be more of those in the future. Thanks for the work you put in to providing such great content. I’m grateful for what I am learning. - Becky A.

Deep discussions without being too cerebral

These guys are well studied and can go deep but are still willing to talk about topics that we’ve all pondered at some point.

This is a wonderful podcast

I found this podcast just recently and am hooked. These guys are so open to exploring theology and the different viewpoints that evolve as the early Christians attempt to outline the parameters of the faith. What a gift.
