    Comfort for the Mourning

    Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted” - Matthew 5:4. But how?

    A Kingdom for the Poor in Spirit

    A Kingdom for the Poor in Spirit

    “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven” - Matthew 5:3. What does it mean that the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to the poor in spirit? In the beatitudes, Jesus subverts the wisdom of his our day with the wisdom of his kingdom. Listen in as Michael Horton, Justin Holcomb, Walter Strickland, and Bob Hiller discuss the first of the beatitudes and how, in God’s kingdom, the poor in spirit are considered “blessed.”

    The Mountains of Scripture

    The Mountains of Scripture

    The story of the Bible is a story of mountains. From the Garden-temple of Eden to Ararat, Horeb, Sinai, and Zion—mountains play an important role in the story of the Bible. Time and time again, God chooses mountains as the place of special communion with his people. In this episode, Michael Horton, Walter Strickland, Bob Hiller, and Justin Holcomb survey the biblical mounts and consider the unique role that Christ’s Sermon on the Mount plays in the biblical story.

    Michael Horton’s New Book on the Origins of “Spiritual but Not Religious”

    Michael Horton’s New Book on the Origins of “Spiritual but Not Religious”

    Caleb Wait, Sola Media’s Director of Content, interviews Michael Horton on his new book, “Shaman and Sage: The Roots of “Spiritual but Not Religious” in Antiquity. Many preachers today appeal to headlines that announce a surge in spirituality as if this news offers the church encouragement. We tend to think of modern secular culture as hostile to spirituality—an atheistic world of soulless materialism. So if modern people now want spirituality, Christians often think, that must mean people will find their way toward Christianity. This thesis, among many others, is challenged by Horton in the first volume of his new series on the Divine-Self. 
     
    Listen in as Horton shares how this new intellectual history of “spiritual but not religious” as a phenomenon in Western culture is the biggest project he’s ever undertaken. Horton shows how ancient shamanist practices and philosophies appear in Plato, schools in Alexandria, the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, and more, revealing to us that modern practices and beliefs are far more ancient than we think.

    “I Have Nothing Left to Hear Me Say”: Religion without Authority

    “I Have Nothing Left to Hear Me Say”: Religion without Authority

    Where does the spirituality of enthusiasm and the New Apostolic Reformation ultimately lead? Hosts Michael Horton, Bob Hiller, Walter Strickland, and Justin Holcomb show how ecstatic shaman-like spirituality wrought in enthusiasm results in an isolated life. While autonomous spiritual practices may free us from the external structures and authorities of religion, the hosts share how the ordinary means of grace is the only place where we find true freedom and rest in our spiritual lives.

    The New (Old) Apostolic Reformation

    The New (Old) Apostolic Reformation

    The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is one of the fastest growing movements "within or on the periphery of American Christianity." Join Michael Horton, Bob Hiller, Walter Strickland, and Justin Holcomb as they discuss where this contemporary movement came from, what its tenets of dominionism, new apostles, and direct revelation are, why its teachings are so prominent in Contemporary Christian Music, and how they are connected to the old, esoteric tradition of enthusiasm.

My Favorite Theological Podcast

Great teaching from a Reformed perspective. I appreciate all the teaching, and as a Baptist, am particularly encouraged by Walter Strickland’s representation of what excellence in Reformed theology looks like from a Baptist perspective. Highly recommended!
