New Podcast: Why I Love Philosophy

What does philosophy have to do with theology? Isn’t Christianity a faith of the heart, and not a faith of the head? And for that matter, isn’t philosophy an impractical discipline, completely unrelated to everyday life?

In this episode, Matthew Barrett talks with Nicholas Wolterstorff about his journey into academia as a philosopher, as told in his book In this World of Wonders: Memoir of a Life in Learning.
