On why a baptism “In the name of the Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer” is not a valid baptism (and you should be re-baptized), the resurrection of the flesh and what it means for burial practices, and the Gospel that gives you Christ and everything that belongs to him…

This special episode is a session from the Crackers & Grape Juice House of Theological Studies featuring Dr. Phillip Cary. in this special episode, we share our second session from our Luther and the Gospel class, led by Dr. Cary.

Veteran teacher Phillip Cary, an internationally acclaimed expert on Augustine and Luther, will show how Luther’s theology arose from the Christian tradition, particularly from the spirituality of Augustine. Luther departed from the Augustinian tradition and inaugurated distinctively Protestant theology when he identified the gospel that gives us Christ as its key concept. More than any other theologian, Luther succeeds in carrying out the Protestant intention of putting faith in the gospel of Christ alone. Cary will explores the consequences of Luther’s teachings as they unfolded in the history of Protestantism.

Phillip Cary has long been a favorite teacher for The Great Courses, and he is a frequent teacher for congregations and laypeople. This will be a wonderful way to go through Lent in 2021.
