    Allison and Nick are overjoyed to have on Kristen Padilla. Kristen is a graduate of Beeson Divinity School and and is a mother, wife, and minister of the Gospel and we talk about a lot of really interesting this! More specifically, we talk about her book Now that I am Called: A Guide for Women Discerning a Call to Ministry, which is an excellent book that you should pick up! Her book is so important to constructing a theology of vocation and calling, specifically for women who feel called to Christian ministry.

    Topics include the gender of Jesus, the incarnation, a theology of calling, T.F. Torrance, parenting, and the nature of how to be the church in this day and age - complementarians and egalitarians together!

My new favorite podcast!

I admire the courage and grace of these two so much! These are not easy topics to cover, with so much controversy and division in churches over these things, but there is always a sense of love and care in this podcast. This has been an example to me as I’m trying to learn how to navigate extreme tension in these areas. Highly recommend this podcast!

Best podcast on egalitarianism

Lately I have been overwhelmed by a sense of displacement and isolation as a professional, educated, and single woman in a complementarian church. I began looking for a podcast that would be insightful, Scriptural, and intellectually challenging on issues surrounding gender and egalitarianism. This podcast is a perfect fit - it presents a balanced approach to the issues while also providing solid Scriptural interpretation.

Biblically sound & very informative

These two are so solid in how they approach the scriptures. It is definitely not a multi-tasking/ easy listening podcast, but I am thankful that they go deep into how the Bible supports egalitarianism. It has been a great resource for me to ground myself in my own position. If your’re an egalitarian, listen! If you’re a complementarian, listen to better understand the other perspective.
