035: Dr. Michael Kruger: 10 Commandments of Progressive Christianity
Back for a second interview, Dr. Kruger joins us to talk about his book, "The Ten Commandments of Progressive Christianity."
Who came up with this list? How can parishes and dioceses protect themselves from the incursion of theological liberalism? What is the correct pastoral response for the adherents in the pews? Is correction harsh?

He is one of the leading scholars today in the study of the origins of the New Testament, particularly the development of the New Testament canon and the transmission of the New Testament text. He is the author of numerous books including:
The Ten Commandments of Progressive Christianity (Cruciform Press, 2019)
The Gospel of the Savior (Brill, 2005)
The Heresy of Orthodoxy (Crossway, 2010, with Andreas Köstenberger)

Dr. Kruger is ordained in the Presbyterian Church in America and also serves (part-time) as Pastor of Teaching at Uptown PCA in downtown Charlotte.
034: The Coming Pastoral Crash with the Rev. John Dobbs
On today's interview we visit with the Rev. John Dobbs, author of the blog "Out Here Hope Remains."
Last month he wrote an article about the unique stresses placed upon clergy during these challenging times we are all facing.
Why is the COVID-19 pandemic placing the longevity of ministry at risk? What are the unique stressors for the pastor in 2020? Why are clergy deferring vital self care?
033: Bishop Thad Barnum: Ministry Within the Yellow Lines
We are joined today by Bishop Thad Barnum. He speaks with us about his call to ministry, pastoral care during times of crisis, Soul Care for clergy, and the additional stresses that COVID-19 has placed on ministry over the past couple of months.
This episode is especially recommended for clergy within and without the Anglican Diocese of the Living Word who have noticed the tell-tale warning signs of burn out.

Encouraging and Consistently Anglican
I’ve been regularly encouraged by Bishop Dobbs purposeful catechetical method in helping outsiders like myself, who may be unaware of Anglicanism’s various terms and jargon. I encourage you to consider these podcasts as they seek to both educate listeners on Anglicanism’s purposeful Protestantism as well as looking towards their present benefit for engaging the world today with a hearty biblically Reformed response.
Great source of sound Christian teaching in the Anglican traditions. Inspiring and educational source for replenishing a hungry and thirsty soul!
Time well spent
I am so enjoying listening to “Living through the Word”. Particularly I love hearing both voices of pioneers sharing their journey which mirrors so many of ours, as well as hearing newer voices on topics that are sparking conversations. Have enjoyed each episode I have listened to and look forward as newer ones are released!
