Despite the fact that this podcast has been around for 6 years, we have never discussed St. Bonaventure. We rectify that today in our conversation with Dr. Benjamin Winter. Dr. Winter wrote on Bonaventure for his dissertation at St. Louis University. He is Assistant Professor of Theology at Divine Word College and Editor-in-Chief at Conciliar Post.
We discuss faith and reason, a little history of St. Bonaventure, freedom and responsibility, and the medieval transcendentals. Thanks for listening!Interview with Dr. Matthew Wilcoxen

We are back with a discussion of Divine Humility with Dr. Matthew Wilcoxen. Dr. Wilcoxen's book Divine Humility was published with Baylor University Press. Dr. Wilcoxen was kind enough to talk with me for an hour about all things humility. He even has some advice for pastors on discussing deep theology with parishioners. Hope you enjoy it!AHOCT - Interview with Dr. Matthew Emerson

How did a fragment of a text dubbed "the Gospel of Jesus Wife" make it past peer review and into the public conversation as possibly debunking the myth that Jesus was single? We discuss this, philosophies of history, and much more on this podcast.AHOCT - Interview with Ross Twele

This podcast continues two recent initiatives in the our work. We interview a scholar on the history of a particular location in the ancient world. Ross Twele, a doctoral student at Catholic University of America, gives the history of Christianity in Gaul, modern day France. Ross and I also talk about the shared history of protestant and Catholic Christians. Being looking out for future episodes on the Evangelical and Baptist retrieval of the Great Tradition.AHOCT - Interview with Laura Estes
September 25, 2020 07:48 AM PDT
This week's episode looks at something brand new for the podcast, the emergence of Islam from a Christian perspective. Laura Estes studies the period at Saint Louis University and is our guest. We focus on how Christians understood this new religious movement and what that meant for Syriac Christians in the 7th and 8th centuries. It is not exhaustive, but it is an important part of the history of the two major world religions.AHOCT - Interview with Dr. Phillip Cary
September 10, 2020 01:35 PM PDT
Today's show is an interview Dr. Cary about his new book, "The Meaning of Protestant Theology: Augustine, Luther, and the Gospel which gives us Christ." This is a long awaited discussion after I first read this book over Christmas. We get into some deep theology and philosophy, but all in service of helping Christians understand the surety of their salvation.AHOCT - Interview with Gavin Ortlund
August 27, 2020 07:31 AM PDT
Today we talk about the doctrine of creation in St. Augustine with Dr. Ortlund. Dr. Ortlund writes about theological retrieval for evangelicals and this work is a work of retrieval for the doctrine of creation. Our conversation sticks mostly to Augustine, his method of interpretation and understanding of humility. For more on how he can help us think about evolution, see https://www.ivpress.com/retrieving-augustine-s-doctrine-of-creationAHOCT - Interview with Samantha L. Miller

She gives us an introduction to John Chrysostom, how to say his name among other things. We then discuss his connection to Stoicism, virtue, demons, and death.
