Abortion: Historically, Biblically, Practically Considered – With Dr. Alan Branch
Dr. Alan Branch joins in this episode to discuss the history of abortion and biblically consider how Christians should understand it.
I highly recommend Dr. Branch's book Born This Way?: Homosexuality, Science, and the Scriptures and his other book Affirming God's Image: Addressing the Transgender Question with Science and Scripture.
We look into the history of abortion in history from ancient times until the present day, examining how the current movement has progressed over the last 50 years.
Listen to this episode to hear Dr. Branch give us 3 practical ways to respond to the abortion movement in a biblical way.

Dr. Branch is the Professor of Christian Ethics at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and a Research Fellow of Christian Ethics at the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission.

Should Christians Observe the Sabbath?
The Sabbath is a biblical concept seen in both testaments in the Bible. But how does it apply to our lives today? Must the New Testament believer observe the Sabbath day?
In this episode, we go over the textual history of the Sabbath and attempt to give a New Testament understanding of it. This episode is a little more technical and exegetical than usual, so we will be diving into three biblical passages on the idea of the Sabbath.
You Need Theological Depth
You must be a theologian. Theology is the foundation of our lives as Christians. And the Bible calls it a sin to be theologically lazy.
Is it important to study theology deeply?
Are some theological topics more important than others?
Are there any unimportant theological topics?
Can you be a healthy Christian without deep theology?
Read good books, memorize the Word, think rationally, and study diligently. This is the Bible's command.
Main Passage: Hebrews 5:11-14

Benny Hinn, Repentance, and Our Future Hope
If you haven't heard the news already, Benny Hinn spoke out against the prosperity gospel that he has championed for so long. I've heard so many takes from different sides, and I think I have some things here that have yet to be said.
What is repentance?
Did Benny Hinn repent?
How should a Christian respond?
All of this and a little more on this episode of The Brooks Podcast.
The Christian and the Church
We discuss the relationship between the Christian and the local church. Many of us neglect the importance of the local church in our walk with Christ. Why is it so important for me to go to church? Is it important that I'm involved? Can I do ministry outside of the church?
What is Biblical Theology?
We are joined by Logan Kane in this episode to discuss biblical theology.
What is biblical theology? How is biblical theology different from systematic theology? How do you do good biblical theology? Why is biblical theology important?
We'll try to answer all of those questions and have some fun on this episode of the podcast. We just got back from a 9Marks conference, and we'll discuss points that were made by such speakers as Ligon Duncan, Owen Strachan, and Jonathan Leeman.

I’ve been listening to this podcasts since it started! Brooks has great topics to listen too if you’re a Christian wanting to learn more about the faith! Brooks explains everything he says so that everyone can understand. He is very good at making complex concepts simple. Brooks has such a fun personality! It’s a joy to listen to him! He also has guests so it’s interesting to hear what they have to say as well! Whenever friends bring up podcasts I always tell them to listen to this one! I am so thankful Brooks decided to start his own podcasts!
You can hear passion for the Bible in each and every word, and Scripture is presented carefully and thoughtfully. I love how intentional Brooks is about choosing topics he sees as relevant and important, and how he emphasizes having guest speakers so that he’s presenting multiple viewpoints. Can’t wait for more!
This podcast is awesome. Love Brooks’ insights, theology, and passion to bring us quality episodes.
