Confessing Our Hope

Listen to the GPTS Web-based radio broadcasts, with new interviews weekly! Several new programs are now available for listening or download. Among them:

  • Dr. G.K. Beale discussed his book titled We Become What We Worship: A Biblical Theology of Idolatry. This was a very helpful and insightful discussion. The heart of the biblical understanding of idolatry, argues Dr. Beale, is that we take on the characteristics of what we worship. Employing Isaiah 6 as his interpretive lens, Beale demonstrates that this understanding of idolatry permeates the whole canon, from Genesis to Revelation. In his book, Dr. Beale concludes with an application of the biblical notion of idolatry to the challenges of contemporary life.

  • Dr. David Garner was our guest as we discussed a book he edited titled Did God Really Say?: Affirming the Truthfulness and Trustworthiness of Scripture.  David B. Garner has his Ph.D. from Westminster Theological Seminary and  is associate professor of Systematic Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia. Publisher’s Description: “Did God really say?” is a fundamental theological question. If God has not spoken clearly, truly, trustworthily, and in human words, then anything goes: believe what you will, act as you wish—no one can fault you. The church’s historical belief in the truthfulness and trustworthiness of Scripture as God’s written Word is being assaulted from without and from within. In this book, seven scholars from Covenant Theological Seminary, Reformed Theological Seminary, and Westminster Theological Seminary confront and repel many of these attacks. Reasoning clearly, cogently, and carefully, they show that the historical doctrine of Scripture is what Scripture teaches about itself and that this teaching can meet and defeat the ungodly intellectual schemes brought against it.
