At its core, Credo Magazine strives to be centered on the gospel, confessing the substitutionary death and historical resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ for the salvation of sinners. In doing so, Credo Magazine not only draws upon the historic creeds and confessions of the faith, but especially the great pillars of the Reformation: sola scriptura, solus Christus, sola gratia, sola fide, and soli Deo gloria. Our desire is to see biblically-grounded, Christ-exalting reformation and transformation in the church today.
Anselm: Faith, Reason, and the Fullness of Joy
Who was Anselm of Canterbury? Those who have never read Anselm often caricature the medieval theologian as an esoteric logic chopper. A careful read of Anselm, however, reveals a different story. Anselm’s “perfect being” theology was not only the apologetic grounds of his ontological argument, but an entryway into his affirmation of both faith and… Download Audio

Over against Arians in his day who subordinated the Son, Athanasius argued that unless… Download Audio
How then shall we read? Hermeneutics, Typology, and Trinity
What kind of book is the Bible? If, as some suppose, the Bible is simply the product of human ingenuity, then we must read it like we read any other book. The meaning of any particular passage is limited strictly to the intention of the human author who wrote it. Questions pertaining to historical context,… Download Audio
Ad fontes: How to become a good historian
How should Christians think about the past? Of course, some historical events are unavoidably important for the Christian. Our faith is, after all, a historical faith, hinging ultimately on the life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ—the historical figure. But what about other events in history? Is the past worth consulting for the future?… Download Audio
Is the God of the Bible the God of the Philosophers?

They are distinct, and never the… Download Audio

Solid Resource Discussing Contemporary Issues in Theology
Credo Podcast is at the top of my rotation. I’m a NT student, but Credo has become a convenient and effective way for me to “peek in” on conversations taking place in systematics. Most episodes are challenging and thought-provoking, and I’m thankful to have such an accessible resource to connect me to contemporary issues in theology.
Making Doctrine Great Again
A serious theological discussion on many doctrines that have not received their due over the years. But it is not simply theology for theology’s sake it is a deeply pastoral discussion as well. Thankful for this important and timely podcast.
This is a great addition to the line up of MBTS based podcasts. I am thankful for Dr. Barrett, and look forward to all the upcoming shows!
