The Three Amigos: Biblical, Systematic & Historical Theology… the radio spot, take a listen

3 amigos cropped

This is another one of my audience-less lectures. Tame, steady, devoid of my shrieking “pay attention! This is important” moments. I discuss the vital role that all three major methods of theological thought have in establishing a healthy church.

While I love systematic theology and consider it a vital part of “doing church” & Discipleship, the church is off balance. We tend to ignore biblical theology and historical theology in our rather egocentric way of thinking about the world. We ask, “What does this mean to me?” before we ask, “What did this mean to the author?”

These branches of theological inquiry are all wonderful in their way. We should make them dear friends. We should become their fourth Amigo.
