Podcast Throwback: Thomas Aquinas, Friend or Foe?
Welcome to the Credo Podcast, where theological ideas have consequences. Today, we’re highlighting a fascinating conversation from the archives between Matthew Barrett and Michael Allen.
Why are evangelicals so unfamiliar with one of the greatest theologians in the history of the church, Thomas Aquinas? Is Aquinas a friend or a foe to evangelicals today? Was Aquinas first and foremost a philosopher or a theologian? Is the popular assumption that Aquinas was a rationalist really true? What advantages are there to embracing a Reformed Thomism?
In this episode of the Credo podcast, Matthew Barrett talks with Michael Allen to address many of the caricatures concerning Aquinas and to consider in what ways Aquinas might advance theology today.
