Theologically Rich

Some important conversations with today’s leading theologians, Biblical exegetes, and philosophers. Enjoyable listen and easy to follow while still being theologically rich.

Great new podcast with a lot of promise

The mire of Christian podcasts is extensive and ever-growing, and it is uncommon for one emerging from the academy to adequately reach the questions & concerns facing both people in the church pews and university students. This podcast has refreshingly succeeded in doing this, and it does so with a unique ability to engage with biblical scholarship, theology, and contemporary philosophy. Indeed, no other podcast boasts (aside from maybe Dale Tuggy's Trinities Podcast) such a wide range of analytic theologian involvement, especially when it comes to including and engaging with exegetes. Not only is it wide-ranging in this way, but its line-up of scholars includes guests from a range of Christian traditions and methodological starting points. Despite the technical sound issues in the early episodes, it is well worth heeding, and I look forward to what they do in the future.
