A Great Dialogue

Drs. Peters, Nugent, and Long do an excellent job engaging academically with the Text and current scholarship while at the same time maintaining a level of approachability that academia can sometimes lack. They bring different perspectives together to offer a thorough and humble interpretation of Scripture as well as parsing current events, church culture, and world history. A worthwhile listen that pulls back the curtain on theology to let anyone see the nuts and bolts.

Give it a listen

I love this podcast so much. I find that my presumptions are challenged, causing me to dive deeper into the scriptures. If you take the time to give it a listen, you will be challenged, too.

Educated AND Smart

It has been said there are no smarter people, just more educated people. Drs. Sam Long, John Nugent and Ron Peters are intelligent and well educated. Too many podcasts - secular and sacred - are little more than echo chambers merely regurgitating the beliefs of those who tune in. They don't expand horizons; they deepen partisan entrenchments.

The After Class Podcast is different. The presenters are at home with nuanced conversation and are comfortable leaving a question unsettled or an issue unresolved. Emanating from a faith tradition that espouses "In essentials unity; in non-essentials liberty; and in all things love," they recognize that well-meaning people who've studied the issues can disagree without being disagreeable.

That isn't to say they're unwilling to take a stand. They are. But when they drive a stake in the ground it is embedded in the Gospel if not always in the expectations of so-called traditional evangelicals. When they draw a line - even one that is unpopular - it reflects the ethos of Jesus Christ and Him working through His people to expand the Kingdom of God.

I highly recommend you listen.
