Pastor as Theologian? [02/27/2011]
Does theology matter in the church? Does it matter if your pastor cares about theology? Dr Michael J.

Dr. Kruger is the author of The Gospel of the Savior: An Analysis of P.oxy.840... and co-author of The Heresy of Orthodoxy.
Special Guest: Dr. Michael J. Kruger of RTS.

Church History 101 [08/10/2008]
Since last week's broadcast was a re-run, we've decided to post a show from the BPR Archives for this week's podcast. Back when Tommyboy and Vocab were the duo running the show, we interviewed one Pastor Bob (who is now a regular on the current incarnation of BPR). The program was a basic and brief overview of the history of the Christian church with ... Pastor Bob. (Who, by the way, holds an M. Div. from Covenant Seminary in St. Louis.)
Special Guest: Pastor Bob Korljan
