Today’s conversation covers religion versus theology versus knowledge, the frontlines as a mother of vocation, theological signs versus answers, whether the Old Testament is just a Hebrew Illiad, and long stories from vicarage (kept short). Guests Rev. Jeffrey Ries, Senior Pastor of Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tacoma, Washington, and Rev. Micah Glenn, Executive Director of The Lutheran Hope Center in Ferguson, Missouri, discuss Francis Pieper’s Christliche Dogmatik, or Christian Dogmatics, so that you know why you believe what you believe so that you will be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks for the hope that you have in the totality of who Jesus is, what Jesus has done, and what Jesus is coming again to do.
