Video: More on Two Kingdoms

In today’s video, I address some questions that were raised in response to my previous video.

Within the video, I reference Brad Littlejohn’s The Two Kingdoms: A Guide for the Perplexed and his Richard Hooker: A Companion to His Life and Work. I mention Hooker’s Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity and the recent Davenant Institute modernizations of it (Volume 1, Volume 2, Volume 3).

Video: Echoes of the Eucharist?

Today’s question: “What would be a text that you would go to demonstrate the multifaceted elements of the Eucharist? Can you recommend any books or resources that explore the many symbolic and typological elements of the Eucharist, much like your book on Echoes of the Exodus? Perhaps an echoes of the Eucharist?”

I reference Peter Leithart’s book Blessed Are the Hungry within the video.

Video: Does Baptism Save Us?

Today’s question: “In Q&A#46, you seem to say that baptism (with water) is necessary for salvation. Am I interpreting your perspective correctly, and if so, what do you think about the man on the cross next to Jesus going to heaven without baptism?”
