This interview was refreshing. Thank you very much. I appreciated the balanced, pragmatic discussion; all the while, being careful to have the conversation founded solidly on the Word of God. I live and pastor in the Northland of Kansas City. I have been blessed to use the Seminary library in my studies, as well as attending many of the lecture series and chapels; however, this evenings discovery of this podcast thrills me! Again, thank you for extending this ministry beyond the borders of MBTS.
