Today’s conversation covers the “study” of God, catechesis as identification in Christ, the vocations of theological knowledge, and how much “theology” a Christian needs to know. Guests Rev. Adam Filipek from Holy Cross Lutheran Church and Immanuel Lutheran Church in Lidgerwood, North Dakota, and Rev. Timothy Winterstein from Faith Lutheran Church in East Wenatchee, Washington, 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. Find your copy of Pieper’s Dogmatics at cph.org. Today’s program is a rebroadcast from August 21, 2017.
