Riffing on the Best of Theologians
This is a podcast to make you think. Pastors Riley and Gillespie pull quotes from some out standing theologians and discuss the implications. Easy to understand but also incredibly deep. A must listen.
If you’re exploring Lutheranism from some other Christian denomination, I highly recommend listening to this—you’ll be simultaneously offended and yet given all the information you need to decide whether this Church body is “for you.”
As good as a seminary education and a heckuva lot cheaper. A jackpot of entertaining Lutheran-centric theotalk.
