    Boys, Men, and the Freedom of the Gospel with Anthony Bradley

    Boys, Men, and the Freedom of the Gospel with Anthony Bradley

    Dr. Anthony Bradley serves as a distinguished research fellow at The Acton Institute and Research Professor of Interdisciplinary and Theological Studies at Kuyper College. He joins Kelsi to discuss his research, interest, and writing on the boy and man crisis and how he believes the Christus Victor articulation of the gospel – or Christ's victory over sin, death and the devil on the cross – has powerful implications for ridding men of shame and giving them a larger purpose to serve their neighbor.

    Preaching the Gospel Constantly with Haroldo Camacho

    Preaching the Gospel Constantly with Haroldo Camacho

    1517 Contributor, Haroldo Camacho, joins Kelsi to talk about how he found himself - without any previous background in Luther's works or Lutheranism - unexpectedly translating Luther's Commentary on Galatians in both Spanish and English. Kelsi and Haroldo touch on the need to constantly hear the gospel preached and the current opportunity to proclaim the gospel in Latin America and Central America - not simply as a conversion message but as both the central message of God's word for all people, in all circumstances.


    Haroldo Camacho lives with his wife, Mercedes, and son, Orlando, in Davie, Florida. He obtained his doctorate from the School of Theology at Claremont in 1991 and served many years as a Certified Court Interpreter with the Judicial Council of California. He has translated Luther’s Commentary on the Epistle to the Galatians (1535) to both Spanish and English.

    The Gospel According to Revelation with Erick Sorensen

    The Gospel According to Revelation with Erick Sorensen

    Many of us stay away from spending too much time in the book of Revelation out of fear or intimidation. This is exactly why today’s guest, Erick Sorensen, decided to dive into the book and differing interpretations. In today’s show, Erick not only answers Kelsi’s questions on the various approaches to Revelation and Christian eschatology, but offers a guide on how to rightly read Revelation with Christ and his kingdom at the center.

    Erick Sorensen is in charge of Church Partnerships in the Development Department at 1517. Prior to joining 1517, Erick served as a pastor for 16 years. He hosts the Law & Gospel Devotional on 1517’s YouTube channel, co-hosts the 30 Minutes in the New Testament and Field Guide to the Bible podcasts, and is co-author of Scandalous Stories: A Sort of Commentary on the Parables.

    Poetry, Lent, and the Hope of Easter with Rachel Welcher

    Poetry, Lent, and the Hope of Easter with Rachel Welcher

    Author and Poet, Rachel Welcher, joins Kelsi to talk about her collection of poems entitled, "Two Funerals, then Easter" in which Rachel shares personal stories of both grief and joy. Kelsi and Rachel talk about some of the characteristics of poetry, including honesty, double meanings and unresolved endings and how these characteristics often mirror both Scripture and the Christian life in general. Rachel also shares some wisdom on getting through Lent during difficult seasons in life and how Jesus' resurrection remains the anchor for her hope in this life and the resurrected life to come.

caligirlHis ,

Thankyou

Loved the sinner saint episode I’ve not started reading bondage of the Will Yet but I’m definitely inspired by this conversation Just wow! Spoke directly to my experience as a believer

The marriage book such a good pod

Drew from the Mitten State ,

Love the show

This is such a valuable podcast with great guests and topics. The only critique I have is that it is often hard to hear due to the volume level. Even with the volume all the way up it’s still quiet. If you could find a way to adjust the volume it would be a great help for listeners.

Keep up the great work!!!
