Bruce Ware on Evangelicalism (Video Interview)
Last fall I (Matthew Barrett) had the pleasure of sitting down with Dr. Bruce Ware, Professor of Christian Theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, to talk about evangelicalism–past, present, and future. Ware is a former president of the Evangelical Theological Society and he provides much insight on the current state of evangelicalism. In this interview Ware talks about some of his evangelical heroes, doctrines that evangelicals are compromising on, how we should define the gospel (particularly in relation to social justice), John Stott, justification and the New Perspective on Paul, the Reformation and Reformed theology, and much, much more. (Be sure to check back in May for the next issue of Credo Magazine as Bruce Ware will be contributing a feature article. Also read a fun interview with Ware from a past issue of Credo Magazine: 10 Questions with Bruce Ware.)
Bruce Ware is professor of Christian Theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Ware has co-edited with Thomas Schreiner Still Sovereign. He also has authored God’s Lesser Glory: The Diminished God of Open Theism; God’s Greater Glory: The Exalted God of Scripture; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit: Relationships, Roles, and Relevance.
