REDISCOVERING —NOT REIMAGINING—WHAT THE CHURCH HAS ALWAYS BELIEVED

Helping you rediscover and retrieve the vintage Christian faith.
Connecting that faith in relevant ways to your 21st century world.

My Promise to You

Jeremy is a deep thinker; he’s courageous enough to challenge some popular evangelicals and emergents today. Jeremy loves the Church…and he tells us that grace grinding is not the way of Jesus and it is not the gospel Jesus preached. From the foreword to “the (un)offensive gospel of Jesus”

3 INSIGHTS ON THE VINTAGE CHRISTIAN FAITH

A Podcast That’s Not Progressive on Purpose

It’s been a while since I’ve written here, but there’s a reason… I’ve been hustling to complete a brand new site chuck full of resources to help people rediscover and retrieve the vintage Christian faith. I shared it last week with my list [which means if you’re not a member, you might want to get on that 😉 ]. The new site is centered around something I’ve been passionate about for a while: making the vintage faith relevant to your world. It’s built on the idea that sometimes to go forward we need to go backwards. Several of us over the years have recognized the need to do just that. And we’ve spearheaded a sort of movement to go vintage in the Christian faith by rediscovering and retrieving what the Church has always believed. And what’s a movement without a podcast, right? I’m pleased to share a project I launched a few weeks ago: The Vintage Christian Podcast. The Vintage Christian Podcast looks backwards to go forward in the Christian faith by rediscovering and retrieving what the Church has believed. We’ve got interviews with leading theologians and ministry practitioners. And then there are the monologues from me, your host, helping you look backwards to go forward in your faith. Each episode is about the length of a morning commute, making it the perfect way to begin (or end) your day. And they drop every Thursday. Based on early feedback, I think you’ll find it informative, inspirational, and even a little bit entertaining. So jump over to iTunes or Stitcher to listen now! We’ve got lots more coming in the next few weeks—including a once-a-week newsletter aggregating the best...

Learning theology with the church fathers continually rebukes the fallen human inclination toward theological and spiritual pride…We are not the first Christians to read Scripture…The soundest theology will protect, preserve and effectively communicate the church’s theological legacy, rather than succumbing to to the temptation to create compulsively new theological models out of whole cloth.

From Learning Theology with the Church Fathers, by Christopher...

Almighty God, who through your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ overcame death and opened to us the gate of everlasting life: Grant that we, who celebrate with joy the day of the Lord’s resurrection, may be raised from the death of sin by your life-giving Spirit; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen. #PrayersForMyCity
