Episode 13: Bonus Episode with Road Trip Q&A!

Well, this one was interesting to say the least!

We drove out to Flagstaff, AZ to hang out with one of our best friends (hi Kyle), and then we drove another 7 hours to south Denver, CO for a wedding (hi David and Rebecca and KJ and CJ). That explains the odd audio quality and the different songs.

In this episode we talk about:

Christian perfection. Our first meeting at Biola. Submission when it is not mutual. And we answer some listener questions from twitter. Plus some other ideas that we cannot speak of, since we want you to listen to the episode!

Episode 11: Red Wine, Narrative Hermeneutics, and Women in Luke/Acts

Welcome back!

It has been a while, hasn't it?

In this episode, Nick and Allison discuss the wide-ranging topic of women in Luke/Acts, touching on various elements of the doctrine of God, the Holy Spirit and Pentecost, how we should read narrative, and commenting on the evangelical tendency to downplay narrative in the quest for 'propositional' truths.

Allison also makes Nick (makes, hah!) drink cheap red wine in honor of a certain someone. You can infer who this might be, but we ain't telling.

Resources on the topic are vast, but the best English commentary on Luke is by Joel B. Green of Fuller Theological Seminary. A standout commentary that Nick says he reads for fun. A similarly great volume on the theology of Luke is also by Green.

Resources more relevant to the topic discussed in this episode include Gospel Women: Studies of Women Named in the Gospels by Richard Bauckham as well as his Jesus and the Eyewitnesses, which makes an appearance in this episode. For a killer article, see Nijay Gupta's excellent contribution in Priscilla Papers on Mary and The Double Message by Turid Karlsen Seim.

We hope to see you at the CBE Conference in Orlando! Blessings!

Make sure to give us an honest 5 star review on iTunes! :)

Episode 7: Christian Identity and Stories of Sexism

This episode is a bit different.

We get a bit personal.

Well, we also tell jokes and enjoy our time together as always!

This time, Allison and Nick tell us about their egalitarian wedding, including some interesting details that often get left aside. Nick gives us a glimpse into the theology of John Wesley and Allison talks about Paul and Adam for book corner.

Then it is off to the races. Allison gives us a lot of insight into her experiences in seminary as a woman, and offers a lot of practical advice for women struggling in ministry or an academic environment.

Some helpful material from Priscilla Papers is Adam Omelianchuk's article, on "The Logic of Equality." Also worthy of your time is Jeanne William's article on "Christlike Responses to a Hierarchical World: Lessons from Bold Women."

In Christ,
