Toward a Comprehensive Theological Anthropology: Revere Franklin Weidner as a Guide
This is a paper first presented at the Annual Meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society on theological anthropology in Revere Franklin Weidner.
An Introduction to Lutheranism
This podcast is an overview of Lutheranism. I discuss history, theology, Confessions, and church bodies.
On the Mass (AC XXIV)
This part of our Augsburg Confession series addresses the Lutheran approach to the Mass in light of the developments in the medieval period.
A Continued Discussion of Patrick Deneen's Why Liberalism Failed
This second part of the discussion of Patrick Deneen's work explores the difference between two different approaches to liberty, and how this understanding impacts how we view the world as Christians.
Marriage and Celibacy (AC XXIII)
This part of our series on the Augsburg Confession covers the topic of marriage and celibacy in light of the Roman requirements for priestly celibacy.
I’ve mostly watched the teaching on YouTube, but figured I’d give a review here. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed Pastor Jordan Cooper’s teaching on historical Protestantism and more specifically the Lutheran position. It has been extremely informative for me, (reformed) who has recently gained a lot more interest in church history. His series on the Augsburg confession in particular is awesome and worth the listen or watch. I’m looking forward to more teaching on Chemnitz. Really enjoy this podcast/channel. Thanks for the work you do Dr. Cooper.
Great Study of Scripture with Cultural and Philosophic Commentary
I’ve been extremely blessed by the teaching ministry of Dr. Cooper. He has a friendly spirit about him throughout these discussions, and he takes the time to describe Lutheran distinctions to people from different backgrounds. If you are interested in either Christianity generally or Lutheranism in particular, I believe Dr. Cooper should be included in your listening stack.
Blessing from God!
Dr. Cooper has helped me slowly move from Presbyterianism to Lutheranism. Highly recommend to anyone in the Reformed world!
