In this special episode, Credo launches a new series called The Credo Alliance, which brings together today’s best theologians to unite around classical Christianity, collaborating for the sake of renewal in the church today.
In this first episode, Credo Fellows Fred Sanders, J.V. Fesko, Scott Swain and Matthew Barrett share their stories, explaining how they were weaned off of modern theology and drawn towards the beauty of classical theology. They also give advice, suggesting entry points to the Great Tradition that can help the next generation. Yet they not only talk theology but philosophy, reflecting on the ways the church fathers used and bent ancient philosophy to support the biblical idea of divine transcendence.
