Approaching the Great Tradition

May 19, 2021

Does being human require tradition? What are examples of tradition in Scripture? Kyle Stoltzfus explains the necessity of tradition in Christianity.
“This is about benefiting from, appreciating, and participating in a cultural legacy larger than oneself. The central burden is that we are recipients of spiritual and moral wealth. We can respond in a variety of ways to this: indulgently, critically, or constructively.”
This is the second part of a three-part series with Kyle. Consider listening to episode 127 if you have not already.
