Wright Wednesdays: Part 7

Justification and the Testimony of Paul In chapter six, Wright interprets other Pauline epistles (Philippians, 1 and 2 Corinthians, and Ephesians) in the light of his over-arching framework.  In his famous contrast in Philippians 3 between “the righteousness of the law” and the righteousness that he now has “in Christ,” Paul designated himself, “‘…as to […]

WHI-964 | The Question of Tolerance

Is Christ the only way to heaven? If so, does that make Christianity an intolerant religion? How should believers relate to outsiders, this side of heaven? These questions and more will be addressed on this edition of the White Horse Inn as the hosts discuss tolerance and the Christian faith. (Originally broadcast Feb. 25, 2007).

Five for Friday

In the Land of Edwards In this week’s edition of Five for Friday, our blog interview feature, we welcome Rev. Stephen LaValley, a PCA pastor in Enfield, CT, the same town in which Jonathan Edwards preached his famous sermon, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God.” If you know of a Reformation pacesetter that […]

Wright Wednesdays: Part 6

[We're continuing with Mike Horton's review of N. T. Wright's Justification, a response to the critique of John Piper and others to his version of the New Perspective on Paul, especially as it relates to the Reformation's understanding of justification.] Justification, Faith, and Faithfulness: The Works of the Law So far, Wright has approximated a […]

WHI-963 | Christianity & Popular Culture

Americans are addicted to Pop-Culture. But what exactly is popular culture, and how has it affected the way American Christians think about and practice their faith? Joining the White Horse Inn panel for this discussion is Ken Myers, producer of Mars Hill Audio and author of All God’s Children and Blue Suede Shoes. (Originally broadcast April 27, 1997)

Let’s Try This One More Time

What is the relationship between evangelicals and the Reformation? It’s a topic that we’ve spent quite a lot of time on, but some folks are still confused. It was recently brought to our attention that at the September 3rd debate between Roman Catholic Francis Beckwith and evangelical Baptist Timothy George, Beckwith said the following: If […]

Looking for a Reformation Experience?

Friend of the Inn, Martin Downes, reports: Over the summer we started a Curry Club for men at our church where we have ended the meal by listening to an episode of The White Horse Inn and having a discussion together about the issues raised. Great food, great listening, and plenty to discuss. I recommend […]

Reformation Now!

Ever since Paul addressed the philosophers in Athens, there has been but a small number of those who embrace the gospel.  The church has nevertheless grown throughout the world precisely through such witness. In our own nation’s religious history, we’ve always had skeptics, deists, various cults, transcendentalists, and atheists who kept us on our toes. […]
