Creating Young (and old) Theologians

If you're ready for a little education on church history, check out this edition of The Mortification of Spin with special guest and children's book author, Simonetta Carr. A successful teacher, writer and homeschooling mother of eight kids, Simonetta is certainly busy, but denies being any sort of "supermom." As Todd and Carl interview their guest, you'll learn about her passion for communicating doctrine through the powerful stories and dynamic characters of church history. With several books already published and a few more in the works, her writings are a great resource not only for children, but also for adults like Todd and Carl who tend only to read books with lots of pictures in them.

No pain, No gain, No church

Todd Pruitt and Carl Trueman meet with PCA church planter, Jon “No Gain” Payne, to discuss the struggles, victories and overall philosophy of biblical church planting. All jokes about skinny jeans and soy lattes aside, the hosts jump right in and ask the tough questions. What does the gospel-centered, reformed version of this ministry look like in an age when church planting is considered “sexy” and glamorous? Jon outlines 8 essential keys to building a proper biblical foundation for any church. While he speaks with excitement about his and his family’s upcoming move to Charleston, SC, he also recognizes that flashy gimmicks will not be the means through which God builds His church. Jon is stepping out in faith and obedience and relying on the means of ordinary grace alone.
