We have really no option but to think about Him with all our might and with the best intellectual instruments at our command. Reason—which is more than logic—insists on coming into our faith. Nothing is easier, nothing is cheaper, and, I believe, nothing in the long result is more fatal, than to give men the... Continue Reading →

In this podcast, I interview Jonathon Davis about his paper concerning the theology of Bonhoeffer. I really enjoyed this interview. Jonathon really knew his stuff and was able to take a lot of the confusing parts about Bonhoeffer and distill it for me to understand. I hope you enjoy!
