Ep. 095: Powerful Young Adults in History Pt. 2 (Jane Grey)

“I would challenge you on your lukewarmness.” What can we learn from a 17-year-old martyr from 500 years ago? Actually, a lot. In our second week of looking at powerful young adults in history (listen to our first one here on Charles Spurgeon), we take a moment to consider the bold, courageous, and devoted life of Jane Grey. We’re very thankful and grateful to have popular church historian Dr. Michael Haykin back on the show again to chat with us about her life.

Ep. 094: Powerful Young Adults in History Pt. 1 (Charles Spurgeon)

If you cut Spurgeon, he’d bleed the Bible. More and more people are hearing about Charles Spurgeon – the 19th Century preacher from London. And it’s for good reasons that people are hearing about him, for his life of faith is extremely encouraging. That’s why we’re specifically looking at Spurgeon’s life this week – and even his young adulthood. We want to know what he did and thought. We also want to hear what he’d say to us if he were to peer into our culture today. We’re graciously joined by Dr. Christian George to help us with this.

Ep. 083: The Gospel and Reformation

Sometimes we have the great privilege of having conversations with leaders on the other side of the world. This week we do. Director of Christian Heritage London, Ben Virgo, joins us this week as we chat about the Reformation and the impact the gospel had on the culture. Ben recently edited a new book called Freedom Movement. This small (shaped as a square) book is like a glorified tract (a tract is a small booklet that says the gospel – used to be very popular). Written by Church historian Michael Reeves, this book creatively explains the life of Martin Luther – one of the key figures of the Reformation. Our conversation looks into how the gospel impacts the culture (something Freedom Movement also looks at), and what still needs to be reformed today. You’ll enjoy this fun, fast-paced conversation.

Ep. 064: What is the Reformation? with Dr. Michael Haykin

This year, 2017, is the 500th anniversary of the Reformation – that glorious moment in history when the gospel was rediscovered. Thanks to God’s sovereign plan, countless men and women during the 1500s and 1600s were reawakened to the beauty and power of the gospel as revealed in God’s Word. The Reformation has shaped more of how you worship today than you know. To join us in helping explain the impact and story of the Reformation is Dr. Michael Haykin from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary where he serves as professor of Church History and Biblical Spirituality. This is part 3 of a 4 part series on a general “church history” timeline from the Patristic Era to the Modern Period.
