Being Reformed, and Staying Christian in Seminary

Today’s panel recently attended the 2014 Desiring God Pastors’ Conference titled, “The Pastor, the Vine, and the Branches: The Remarkable Reality of Union with Christ,” as representatives for Reformed Forum and Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, PA. The group speaks about the opportunity to spread the ministry of Reformed Forum beyond the bounds of Presbyterianism and the relationship of confessional Reformed theology to the broader, more loosely Reformed community. This episode also features an interview with David Mathis and Jonathan Parnell of Desiring God Ministries about their recent book, How to Stay Christian in Seminary.

David Mathis is executive editor at desiringGod.org and an elder at Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, MN. He has edited several books and is co-author of How to Stay Christian in Seminary.

Jonathan Parnell is a writer and content strategist for Desiring God Minstries and co-author of How to Stay Christian in Seminary. The book was inspired by a series of blog posts at desiringGod.org.

Thanks for the continued work at Reformed Forum!
It is strange to me when pastors–particularly, but not exclusively, those in Reformed churches–have not heard of Reformed Forum. Just because, when you research topics which have been covered on RF, they tend to appear quite high in google search results (in my experience). It is also strange to me that after 300+ episodes RF still has to attempt to justify the use of reading/speaking to those outside of various narrow theological circles.
Incidentally (but not quite unrelated), I’d like to see an interview with Molly Worthen about her recent book Apostles of Reason. Maybe featuring D.G. Hart as well.
