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.
AHOCT - Interview with Dr. Hans Boersma
Dr. Boersma of the Nashatoah House comes on the show to talk about his book Seeing God: The Beatific Vision in Christian Tradition. In the episode, Dr. Boersma explores Christian Platonism (if that is the right term), Sacramental Theology, and the Creator-Creation Distinction. It was a pleasure to have Dr. Boersma on and we hope you enjoy this episode.
AHOCT Interview with Dr. Tyler Wittman
Dr. Wittman studies the doctrine of God and teaches at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. We discuss baptists in theology, the role of theology in seminary education, and how to choose a college. Dr. Wittman's first book was published with Cambridge University Press, God and Creation in the Theology of Thomas Aquinas and Karl Barth, published with Cambridge University Press in 2018.
AHOCT Interviews: Dr. Benjamin Winter
Despite the fact that this podcast has been around for 6 years, we have never discussed St. Bonaventure. We rectify that today in our conversation with Dr. Benjamin Winter. Dr. Winter wrote on Bonaventure for his dissertation at St. Louis University. He is Assistant Professor of Theology at Divine Word College and Editor-in-Chief at Conciliar Post.
We discuss faith and reason, a little history of St. Bonaventure, freedom and responsibility, and the medieval transcendentals. Thanks for listening!
Interview with Dr. Matthew Wilcoxen
We are back with a discussion of Divine Humility with Dr. Matthew Wilcoxen. Dr. Wilcoxen's book Divine Humility was published with Baylor University Press. Dr. Wilcoxen was kind enough to talk with me for an hour about all things humility. He even has some advice for pastors on discussing deep theology with parishioners. Hope you enjoy it!
AHOCT - Interview with Dr. Matthew Emerson
Today's guest is Dr. Emerson who is the Dean of the Hobbes College of Theology and Ministry at my alma mater Oklahoma Baptist University. He discusses with us his interest in the Great Tradition, the Doctrine of the Descent, hermeneutics and much more.
He is also the founder of the Center for Baptist Renewal so check that out if you are Baptist and interested in the Great Tradition of the church.
AHOCT - Episode 81 - The Gospel of Jesus' Wife
How did a fragment of a text dubbed "the Gospel of Jesus Wife" make it past peer review and into the public conversation as possibly debunking the myth that Jesus was single? We discuss this, philosophies of history, and much more on this podcast.
Love the analysis and discussion; keep up the great work!
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.
