Episode 35 - Study, Study, Study

Image
Eddie and Allen briefly talk about the holiness of God and then dive into a discussion on the importance of biblical study. Particularly, this is true for pastors who need to study outside of the regular time for merely teaching. This is also true of all believers as well. The guys both share some of their personal study habits. Pertaining to their talk on the holiness of God, here is a recent article by Allen on "God's Unmatchable Holiness." http://thingsabove.us/gods-unmatchable-holiness-part-1/

Episode 34 - A Theology of Rest

In the Christian life, there should be time to rest. This is true for all Christians and especially for pastors. There is a "technical" issue in that this podcast is released before Episode 35 even though it was recorded after Episode 35! Still, listen in to Eddie and Allen as they talk about rest.
