The Christian walk is a journey. Biblically, it is a journey from Egypt to the Promised Land. This is what Chuck DeGroat elaborates beautifully in his book, “Leaving Egypt: Finding God in the Wilderness Places.” But in between, the wilderness is a place of testing, and paradoxically, the place where God matures and conforms us to Himself. But as fallen people, we fail to see just how sanctifying the wilderness can be. We fail to see that it is there where life actually begins and where our affections are re-edenized. In this wonderful interview, DeGroat uses his training as a theologian and counselor to show us the better way; the way of life through death.
There is resurrection coming! It has been almost a year since Trinity Talk produced a new interview. My schedule has picked up quite a bit at church and Trinity Talk became secondary in my priority list. But with the new format, I will be able to produce more interviews with world class scholars on a host of issues. My time is precious and in order for me to dedicate time outside of my regular work schedule it will have to be financially worth my time. Here is the potential downside for some: each interview will cost $0.49. Yes, half a dollar to download a well-edited interview with world class scholars and authors.
What is coming? On my list I have interviews on Christian Counseling with Dr. Chuck DeGroat, Eschatology with Dr. Joel McDurmon, and Theology of Imitation with Dr. Jason Hood. It also appears that I have just secured an interview with Andy Crouch on his new book. Stay tuned!
