‘Jesus and the God of Classical Theism,’ with Dr. Steven Duby

Dr. Steven Duby joins Derek and Alastair to discuss how systematic and biblical Christology can inform one another — and even be reconciled.

Does the philosophical knowledge of God known as Classical Theism enrich our reading of Scripture? Or does it get in the way? Derek and Alastair have a conversation with Dr. Steven Duby about the retrieval of Classical Theism and its interaction with good Christology.
