The Beautiful Ache

Leigh McLeroy

Leigh McLeroy (MA in Cultural Apologetics, Houston Baptist University), writer, speaker, ghostwriter, dog-lover, stops by to talk with David Capes on “The Stone Chapel” about her amazing book, The Beautiful Ache: Finding the God Who Satisfies When Life Does Not.  Leigh is a wonderful writer who weaves together stories from life and Scripture to talk about all of our spiritual journeys.  This book is for anyone whose longings do not match the reality of this world.  This is “the ache” we all experience, but is a sure sign that there is something more.

God of All Comfort

Dr. Scott Harrower, Ridley College, Melbourne Australia

Dr. Scott Harrower, Associate Professor of Theology and History at Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia, has written a timely and significant book: God of All Comfort: A Trinitarian Response to the Horrors of This World (Lexham Press, 2019).  Prior to his academic career, he grew up in Argentina and saw the horrors that went on there.  Then he became a trauma nurse and saw deeply disturbing things.  The world is full of horrors: dismemberment, assault, disease, death.  How do we make it through?  Dr. Harrower has written a terrific book that brings together insights from philosophy, theology, psychology and medical studies.  You need to hear this!  If not now, then one day.

Messianic Theology of the New Testament

Dr. Joshua Jipp, associate professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, joins David Capes this week on The Stone Chapel podcast. He has written an important book entitled The Messianic Theology of the New Testament (Eerdmans, 2020).  His particular focus is to survey and understand the royal messianism associated with the Davidic dynasty.  He makes the point that there is no standardized, pre-existing view of the messiah at the time of Jesus; instead, there has been a robust “messianic discourse” that has been going on for hundreds of years centered on King David and his legacy.

God’s Messiah in the Old Testament

Andy Abernethy, Wheaton College

Andrew Abernethy, PhD Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, is a former colleague of David Capes at Wheaton College.  He is an Associate Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College and Degree Coordinator for the Master of Arts in Biblical Exegesis.  He is author of many articles, but the focus of this podcast is a book he wrote along with Dr. Gregory Goswell of Christ College in Sydney, Australia.  It is entitled God’s Messiah in the Old Testament: Expectations of a Coming King (Baker Academic, 2020).  While some scholars find precious little “messianism” in the Old Testament, others find it in nearly every verse.  So, what is the truth?  Abernethy and Goswell take a book by book approach to work through those passages that look forward to a coming messianic king.

TheologyontheWeb.org.uk

Rob Bradshaw, Librarian Spurgeon’s College, London

Rob Bradshaw, librarian at Spurgeon’s College in south London, has been digitizing articles, journals and books for 20 year to provide people around the world access to high value theological resources.  His website, www.theologyontheweb.org.uk, is a hub for a variety of websites that links pastors, students and teachers with resources in biblical studies, theology, church history and practice theology.  After working in Nepal, Rob realized how deeply poverty was affecting Christians around the world.  Nepalese Christian leaders who wanted to learn had no way because resources were not available.  To date, he and his wife have digitized or digitised (British spelling) over 45,000 articles and hundreds of books.  The work is hard, expensive and painstaking, yet Rob has a calling.  He has had over two million visits to his site and seven tera-bytes of downloads.  As the shadow of Covid-19 grows longer, those who have no theological library ready to hand are turning more and more to “TheologyontheWeb.”
