The Thinking Fellows is a podcast that explores theology, history, and apologetics. Hosted by Caleb Keith and Drs. Scott Keith, and Adam Francisco.
How the Church Reads the Bible
47:14Caleb, Scott, and Adam are joined by John Hoyum to talk about how churches across the world read and preach the Bible. John is a Junior Fellow at 1517 and the co-host of the new podcast Preaching the Text with Steve Paulson. The discussion revolves around the lectionary, which is assigned Bible readings that churches use during worship. How do these readings get assigned? What benefits and drawbacks are there to using a lectionary rather than reading the Bible book-by-book? Support the Show on Giving Tuesday Preaching the Text 1517 Podcasts
A Time to Be Thankful
40:08The Thinking Fellows discuss and describe the things they are thankful for this year. While somewhat cliche, the fellows all explain how they have been blessed by their families and the work of 1517. Scott gives a helpful reminder that even though social times are changing and challenging, life is still very comfortable and good for many people, and we have many reasons to give thanks for God's blessings.

Trust Not In Princes
42:19The Thinking Fellows comment on Psalm 146. "Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation. When his breath departs, he returns to the earth; on that very day his plans perish." How do this and other passages affect how Christians view their political actions and vocations? Can Christians be active in the civil realm without violating this precept? Support the Show 1517 Podcasts HWSS Bentonville
Literary Apologetics (Why You Should Study Them)
42:35The Fellows discuss the purpose and place of literary apologetics. They look at the role of narrative and imagination when doing theology and how it can help address those in need of Christ. They discuss the significance of good literature written by Christians like C.S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkein and how they can remind theologians that theology is not just categories but needs a narrative. Here We Still Stand 2023 Is SOLD OUT. Tickets for the HWSS regional event are still available.

Why You Should Celebrate the Reformation
46:45In this episode, The Thinking Fellows address the idea that the Reformation is not worthy of celebration but is lamentable. The Fellows contend that the Reformation ought to be celebrated for its recovery of the Gospel. Likewise, history tells us that Luther alone did not divide the catholic church but that separation and division have always been in the history of the Church on earth.

Justification By The Word
46:36The Thinking Fellows are joined by Dr. Jack Kilcrease to discuss the centrality and importance of the doctrine of the Word. Jack is the author of Justification by the Word, a new book published through Lexham Academic.
