Phenomenal. One of the best books I’ve read in the last few years. This book serves as a prolegomenon to engaging and navigating our current culture by way of a historical-philosophical explanation of how we got here. This book connected a lot of dots for me in my own understanding of our contemporary society. Very, very helpful. A technical subject matter. But Carl Trueman is a fantastic writer. He makes it easy to follow his argument and is enjoyable to read.
On Sunday (Feb. 21, 2021) Dan will be preaching on Christ’s message to the church in Pergamum in Revelation 2:12-17. So in this episode, in anticipation of that upcoming sermon, we spend time modeling how we might interrogate the passage with questions to try to gain a better understanding of it.
Kirk and Dan record some material on their drive to a Charles Simeon Trust workshop. (Be on the lookout for the part when they go through the Starbucks drive-through). In this episode, they talk about Christ’s message in Revelation 2:8-11 to the church in Smyrna.
In this episode, we look at the uses of “conquer,” “overcome,” or “victory” across John’s writings, but especially the book of Revelation. What is the meaning of this call to “conquer”? And how does it shape our understanding of the book and the nature of the Christian life?
In this episode, Kirk looks further at Revelation 2:1-7, diving into some additional matters for our consideration as we reflect on its importance for our lives and our understanding of the rest of the book.
