Dennis R. Edwards - What is the Bible and How Do We Understand It?
In this episode, Mike and Andy chat to Dr Dennis R. Edwards about his newest book: What is the Bible and How Do We Understand It? Dennis R. Edwards offers a succinct and profound investigation of Scripture. By holding up Jesus as the interpretive key and inviting us to read the Bible with the marginalized, Edwards challenges us to a Christ-centered approach to hermeneutics. What does it mean to read the Bible with Jesus at the center? How does Scripture illuminate the work of God in the world? Edwards shines light on contemporary debates about the Bible and calls us to faithful, loving interpretations and applications of the Word of God. Buy the book >>>> here

Welcome to episode 13 aka “off the cuff stuff #1”.  In this episode, Mike and Andy chat about body, soul and spirit. Many Christians believe that human beings are made of three distinct parts: body, soul and spirit. This view is often called trichotomy and it’s very very very popular… But it’s not the only way to think about this topic.
