Dr. Charles Kim, Jr. offers interviews and conversations about the historic doctrines and theologians of the Christian faith. The podcast has grown over the last several years to include not only round table discussions of ancient theological texts, but also includes interviews of leading theologians on these topics.
Interview with Dr. Myk Habets on Heaven
We are pleased to welcome back Dr. Myk Habets. We discuss Dr. Habets books Heaven: An Inkling of What's To Come. Dr. Habets provides some insight into why we should look forward to heaven and how to talk about heaven with your family.
Interview - Dr. Michael McClymond
Is even the Devil redeemed? We talk through this question with Dr. Michael McClymond whose book The Devil's Redemption (Baker Academic) has received multiple awards, including the Gospel Coalition's Book of the Year.
Interview with Hannah Nation
Hannah Nation comes on to talk about Faith in the Wilderness: Words of Exhortation from the Chinese Church (Kirkdale Press). Our conversation gives some background to the Chinese house church pastors who preached these sermons and the history of the House Church movement in China. We have much to learn about how to suffer well from these Chinese brothers and sisters in the faith. As Hannah said in closing, "Our call is what to walk with Christ and reminds ourselves that he is our suffering Lord and he is with us.”
The Hymns of Ambrose
In today's episode we talk about Ambrose of Milan and his famous hymns. Music in church has not always been a given. We have Ambrose to thank for this great blessing.
Interview with Dr. Jonathan Tran
It was a pleasure to speak with Dr. Jonathan Tran about his new book Asian Americans and the Spirit of Racial Capitalism. Dr. Tran begins with some fascinating engagement with political theory and a history of Delta Chinese, before moving into the metaphysical and theological underpinnings of his positive proposal in the latter chapters. Our conversation focuses on the more theological chapters, but the entire work is very thought provoking.
AHOCT - Basil of Caesarea Against Eunomius Books 2 and 3
We are back with our old format in this episode. Tom, Trevor, and Chad discuss Basil of Caesarea's Against Eunomius Books 2 and 3. The conversation centers on how to speak about God given what we know from scripture. It is a conversation that includes philosophy of naming and language broadly. This touches on some of the most foundational issues in theology, how does one speak about God at all. Hope you enjoy this episode.
Redeeming my education
I’m a homeschool mom who came to faith as an adult. I’ve been covering church history with the kids and every now and then I get the urge to learn more about a certain person, event, or writing mentioned in our textbook. Without fail this podcast has had an episode on every single thing I want to learn more about.
I didn’t learn about any of these things in my youth, and I’ve really enjoyed getting a better grasp of the ideas and people who shaped the Christianity I experience today.
What a gem!
Volume of the voice’s raises and lowers… A LOT. I will not accept that
The Great Tradition
Thank you for the interviews with thought-provoking theologians and historians! I’ve often experienced a 21st century church that is floating and disconnected from its own history and great tradition in the development of Christian doctrine; however, these conversations are reminders that we are a part of a conversation 2,000 years in the making. The variety of interviews on topics from the beatific vision to rituals have been a part of shaping my own faith and pastoral ministry. I know that this is a gift from you to the church which is costly both with time and money; thank you for serving us in this way!
