“There’s No Poker in the Truth” ft. Samford University’s Douglas A. Sweeney I Saturdays at Seven Ep. 29

In the twenty-ninth episode of the “Saturdays at Seven” discussion sequence, Todd Ream talks with Douglas A. Sweeney, Professor of Divinity and Dean of Beeson Divinity School at Samford University. Sweeney commences by talking about the one of a kind room Beeson fills in theological training as a confessional, evangelical, and interdenominational establishment. He then goes on to converse about how that special room is increased by Beeson’s commitment to presenting an incarnational experience for ministerial formation by in-particular person educating, small course dimensions, shared worship ordeals, and frequent foods. Ream and Sweeny then changeover to conversing about Sweeney’s very own preparing for major these kinds of an establishment as a outcome of his activities at Yale College and Trinity Evangelical Divinity College. A essential part of that planning in Sweeney’s daily life is his research of Jonathan Edwards and strategies Edwards religion prompted him to pursue truth irrespective of where by it could reside. Ream and Sweeney near their discussion by chatting about the relationship Beeson shares with Samford’s other qualified universities as very well as methods it seeks to provide continuing education for laypersons.
