New Credo Podcast! Can John Webster help us make theology theological again?

John Webster is one of the most profound theologians in recent history. While some may not recognize the name, his works have set a trajectory for theology and dogmatics in evangelical scholarship. Webster not only had a great understanding of the Great Tradition and a deep grasp of exegesis, but he also summoned the next generation to take theology seriously as a discipline in and of itself, what Webster called theological theology.

In this episode, Matthew Barrett talks with Tyler Wittman on the enduring legacy of John Webster, why his works have influenced so many theologians today, and how the late theologian can help Christians today make theology theological again.
