The Podcast for Cultural Reformation seeks to help listeners think about the nature of culture and our role and responsibility in shaping culture through the lens of God's eternal Word. Featuring book reviews, author interviews and expert commentary.
Sphere Sovereignty and Naming the World
We revisit two of our favourite themes - Sphere Sovereignty and Modal Aspects - and explore how these two models emerged from the Reformation and how they identify and give expression to the way the world is necessarily organized.
God’s Revelation in Nature
The biblical starting point for all human activity - including academic reflection - is the character of God as revealed in the Bible, the incarnate Son, and the created world. For man to begin with anything else is necessarily to respond in an idolatrous fashion.
How Do We Encounter Reality?
Contrary to unbelieving philosophy which places some aspect of human experience on the throne of the universe, and contrary to earlier Christian philosophy which seeks to elevate theology above all other spheres of science, is the Reformational view. On this view, the self-attesting revealed Word of God is the basis for every subsequent theory about the universe.
How Does the World Hold Together?
This episode introduces the idea that aspects of reality hang together like pearls on a thread, and explains how philosophical assumptions inform and direct our everyday activities.
How do we Think Christianly
A distinctly Christian way of thinking means returning to the Word of God as the source of all true knowledge and insight, and building an understanding of the world from that foundation. It is our starting point that makes all the difference.
Making Sense of Reality
Season Five of the Podcast for Cultural Reformation kicks off with a brief review of the Canadian Federal election and begins a discussion that we will develop throughout this season on how and why a fully formed Christian worldview accounts for reality, even in the midst of tumultuous cultural circumstances.
For forming a Christian mind
Great content. Hopefully this type of comprehensive Christian thinking reinvigorates the church.
Proactive, practical, principled podcast particularly pungent in producing productive pupils protected and opposed to pietism
Very good—and even better lately
This podcast has turned a major corner. The content has always been thoughtful and helpful. However, I used to find the volume too low for me to listen to while driving or doing anything involving background noise. Someone fixed that, and now I hear it loud and clear. Also, I am LOVING the new edge that these thinkers are bringing to their addressing of current events like the lockdowns. They are still as thoughtful as ever, but they now present their thoughtfulness with a vigor and zeal—and a practical applicability—that is refreshing as it is energizing. Thank you Joe, Ryan and team. Keep up the great, great work.
