A Presbyterian and a Lutheran walk into a bar, and…they write a book together! We’re pleased to feature the one and only Carl Trueman, introducing his latest tome, Between Wittenberg and Geneva, co-authored with renowned Lutheran scholar Robert Kolb.

As the two record their written correspondence, they find much upon which to agree—though the differences between the Reformed and Lutheran traditions cannot be overlooked. Recovering the priorities of the Reformation is no small task, yet the authors converse with much grace, as they show us the points of doctrine that are worth fighting for. Listen in, as Carl shares the most important agreement and disagreement between the traditions…and, how to satisfactory offend others with just two fingers.

Our apologies for the technical difficulties in the opening moments of the program.

The preachability of a doctrine is irrelevant to whether it should be preached, let alone whether it is actually true.

What Revoice and its supporters get terribly wrong...

Posted on Tuesday, July 31, 2018 by Carl Trueman on Postcards from Palookaville

Revoice capitalizes on precisely the culture of evangelical power which its critics have perfected and which has always been problematic.  And an old friend returns from exile.
