New Credo Podcast! How to be a Joyful Calvinist
Who was one of the great influences on today’s leading theologians and university presidents? James Montgomery Boice. Educated at Harvard University and Princeton Seminary, the late James Montgomery Boice was raised up for a lifetime of preaching at Tenth Presbyterian Church. Yet he also found himself at the epicenter of theological debate. He was committed to the authority of scripture, passionate for the doctrines of grace, and devoted to theology’s intersection with the pulpit. Yet he was also a pastor’s pastor, mentoring others like Philip Graham Ryken, president today of Wheaton College.
Philip Graham Ryken joins Matthew Barrett to discuss the many ways the theology and preaching of James Montgomery Boice influenced him, but also an entire generation. Knowing Boice as mentor, close friend, and brother in ministry, Ryken shares personal stories about the late James Montgomery Boice, including his genius in the pulpit as well as his fervor for the church.
