Piper & Wilson: A 2 Hour Conversation (video)

John Piper and Douglas Wilson sat down together and videotaped a 2 hour conversation where they discussed their differences and similarities. These are 2 men who I have a great deal of admiration for.  Neither of these men set out to become celebrities in Evangelical Christendom, but became such through their efforts in their churches, and following in their wake are a multiplicity of significant and lasting ministry efforts.

Christ and Culture

Christ the Center tackled a lengthy debate of viewpoints posing the question of how Christ relates to the culture, and a variety of related issues such as politics, vocation, education and fine arts. Participants in the debate are Bill Dennison, Doug Wilson, Daryl Hart and Nelson Kloosterman. The result is 12 audio messages and responses.

To be honest, I didn’t make it through the whole series. If you want the gist of the series I suggest you listen to the Introduction and the final Roundup.

The Unwavering Resolve of Jonathan Edwards

Steve Lawson joined the Christ the Center team to talk about his enriching little book The Unwavering Resolve of Jonathan Edwards.  The focus of the conversation centered around Edwards resolutions, which reveal a profound theology of  dependence upon God’s power to pursue holiness. You will be challenged by Edwards single-minded devotion to practical holiness and it’s value in this life.

Perspectives on Pentecost

Christ the Center engages in a rich discussion with Richard Gaffin about the place of Pentecost in redemptive history. From their website:

Drawing from his book Perspectives on Pentecost and his “Acts and Paul” lecture notes, Dr. Gaffin explained the place of Pentecost as the culmination of that complex of events surrounding the person and work of Jesus Christ which includes his incarnation, death, resurrection, and ascension.  Pentecost, then, occurs as part of the accomplishment of redemption and is therefore unrepeatable although its significance and effects reverberate throughout the Christian life.  This is a rich biblical theological discussion that will repay frequent rehearsals.
