In episode 39 of Theology In Particular, Dr. Joshua Henson and I talk about the polemical dimension of the Old Testament. “Polemic” means a strong verbal or written attack. Dr. Henson helps us to see how the Old Testament scriptures simultaneously record true history while strongly denouncing the false gods of the nations. Check out this episode!
In episode 38 of Theology In Particular, Pastor Tom Hicks helps us to understand and evaluate a view of the Old Covenant law known as Theonomy.

In this episode, Dr. James Renihan answers the question, what is a Reformed Baptist? from a historical, theological, and practical viewpoint. I have found that church members sometimes have a difficult time answering this question, not because they are ignorant of who we are, but because it is hard to know where to start or what to emphasize. We hope this helps! Check out this episode!

In this interview, Dr. James Renihan stresses the importance of holiness in the life of ministers. We should remember how Paul exhorted Timothy, saying, “Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers” (1 Timothy 4:16, ESV). Needless to say, it is encouraging to hear a seminary president stress the importance, not only of sound doctrine in the mind, but holiness in the whole of life. Check out this episode!
