On today’s Equipping You in Grace show, Dave Jenkins and Dr. Robert Letham talk about what Sola Scriptura is and why it’s not opposed to tradition, the place of church history in the Christian life, questions and questioning in the Christian life, along with his book, Systematic Theology (Crossway, 2019).

What you’ll hear in this episode

  • The Sacraments as one of the most neglected doctrines in the Church today, and how to recover them in the Church today.
  • What does Sola Scriptura mean, and why is it not opposed to tradition.
  • Why do you start with the doctrine of God in this work and not with the doctrine of Scripture.
  • The place of questions and questioning in the Christian life to develop our convictions and grow in a biblical worldview.
  • How historical theology informs a good understanding of systematic theology.
  • What union with Christ is and how it relates to communion with God, and it’s essential to the Christian life.
  • What it looks like to grow in maturity as a Christian theologian.
  • Some practical markers Christians should look for and grow in as Christian theologians.
