No Creed But the Bible?
Now that we’ve adjusted to the new biweekly schedule for Mortification of Spin, we present one final encore of Theology on the Go. Carl and Todd return with a new episode next week, and then every other week thereafter. Thanks for listening!
Jonathan and James welcome a very special guest today. J. V. Fesko is the Harriet Barbour Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, MS. The Need for Creeds Today is one of Fesko’s most recent works and the topic of today’s conversation.
