An Interview With Evangelical Focus

evangelical-focusI sat down with the good folks at Evangelical Focus to answer a variety of questions about what it means to be evangelical, the QIRC and QIRE, the Young, Restless, and Reformed moment, what we learn from history, favorite books, how to respond to the changing sexual mores (customs) of the surrounding culture. Here it is.

  1. “My fervent wish is that folk would read our great writers, our churchly confessions, and embrace the Reformed theology, piety, and practice as an alternative to Rome, Constantinople, and Seattle.”

    Dr. Clark, what did you mean by listing Seattle? Does Seattle represent the un-churched?

  2. Ah yes, we have a bevvy of that here. I could easily name names. But here’s an example: I checked out a liberal Presbyterian church one time a couple years back just to see what they were saying and was unfortunately treated to a hipster guy/girl acoustic duo leading the singing with ‘My Hero’ by the Foo Fighters.

  3. This was a very helpful interview. It was a great and succinct analysis of Reformation theology, our contemporary culture, and your life message – a message we need to know and treasure.

    I printed this interview out and hope to become better familiar with what you said (and the list of books) during the coming year.

    Thank you for serving Christ and His church with love, genuine care, and clarity.

  4. Great interview…

    the church really is where “the action” is, i.e., it is the institution established by our Lord for the advancement of the kingdom of God through the foolishness of Gospel preaching and through the administration of baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

    … preach it, brother!

  5. Excellent interview! I would have been kept from alot of mistaken ideas in my early ministry had I been exposed to such counsel and theologians in my youth. I did not at the time realize that the influences from the “Great Awakening” were, in fact, working against the Reformation’s theology, piety and practice.

    Indeed, preach it!
