The Significance of Christian Marriage with Dr. Warren Smith

March 24, 2022

In an essay in The Next Methodism, Warren Smith, Professor of Historical Theology at Duke Divinity School makes the case that Christian marriage is a unique type of spiritual friendship in which husband and wife "encourage and challenge one another in the way of holiness." Bob and Stephanie talk with Warren about the importance of defining marriage and singleness within the biblical framework of baptism, sanctification, and resurrection, and discuss how a grounded theological understanding of sex and marriage can inform the theology and practice of the next Methodism. This is an important discussion for traditional Methodists who want to focus on what we're "for" when it comes to talking about sex and marriage.
