  • 4 the World: Practicing Witness

    Dr. John Frame discusses our witness and the missional identity of the church. How do we practice theological education? What have Lesslie Newbigin and Harvie Conn contributed to this dialog? And, at a time when our civil discourse has become less civil, why is the gospel, and not just natural law, so vital to the church's public witness and theology? - This concludes Season 1. We'll return September 5th (the Wednesday after Labor Day) with Season 2, starting with Dr. Steve Brown. Have a good summer break!

  • 4 the World: Practicing Theology

    Is theology only an academic discipline or are all Christians called to doing theology as we apply the Scriptures in every part of our lives? Dr. John Frame challenges us to consider that we can only truly know ourselves, if we understand and know God, that is, if we do theology well.

  • 4 the World: Interpreting the Lessons of the Reformation for Today

    In the wake of his recent visit to China, and his approaching visit to Covenant College, Dr. Pratt talks about how God's people in very different cultural circumstances can apply some of the lessons of the Reformation, 500 years later.
