Audio Interview: A Discussion on My Book, and on Pagan and Gnostic Influences on Orthodox Theology


This week I joined Sean Finnegan again for another interview on the excellent Restitutio podcast.

In this interview, Finnegan and I discuss my new book, The God of Jesus in Light of Christian Dogma.

You’ll hear about the books’ content and fundamental arguments, and a conversation on how historical pagan and Gnostic thinking influenced the development of orthodox Christian doctrine.  From there, Sean and I consider an alternative way of interacting with the New Testament which doesn’t rely on the philosophies which undergird the creedal, state-sanctioned Christianity which emerged out of the turmoil of the fourth century CE.
