Jesus the Stranger with Dr. Ken Collins

Bob and Stephanie chat with Dr. Ken Collins, Professor of Historical Theology and Wesley Studies at Asbury Seminary, on his new book Jesus the Stranger: The Man from Galilee and the Light of the World. It's a unique look at the life of Jesus through the lens of "otherness" and suffering and offers some real hope and instruction for those who follow Jesus, especially in times when they are seen as "strangers" to the rest of the world.

Evangelicals in the British Methodist Church with David Hull

In June of 2021, the Methodist Church in the UK voted to allow same-sex marriages and adopted other sweeping changes in the area of marriage and human sexuality. In this episode Rev. Dr. David Hull, President of Methodist Evangelicals Together, an evangelical renewal group in the Methodist Church, describes the impact of the decision on the "mother Church" of Methodism and how evangelicals in Great Britain are responding. He provides insight and encouragement for Methodists around the world to continue to "spread Scriptural holiness across the land" as some churches and cultures move away from orthodox Christian faith and teaching. 

Visit the Methodist Evangelicals Together website.

David references Carl Trueman's book The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self
