Office Hours," has been one of those I pick. It's coming up on its third season September 7. One of my favorite segments from the show is, "Ask the Profs." They plan to kick of the season with this segment. Below, you can read the full press release and see a schedule of who will be on the show when.
re: Season Three of Office Hours, the official audio broadcast of Westminster Seminary California.
In its first two seasons Office Hours has featured interviews with with WSC faculty members (including Mike Horton, Bob Godfrey, and Hywel Jones) as well as friends of the seminary such as Sinclair Ferguson, Terry Johnson, John Witte, David Hall, and visiting faculty such as Guy Waters and Darryl Hart. We've also introduced listeners to WSC alumni planting Reformed congregations in Turkey, Israel, and Southeast Asia.
On September 7, we begin the third season of Office Hours and we're approaching 100,000 downloads. To celebrate we begin with another episode of "Ask the Profs" in which the faculty takes phone calls at 760-480-8477 and answers questions about Reformed piety, church planting, why it's important for ministers to learn the biblical languages, whether it's fair for God to expect sinners to keep the law, and the relationship between worship and the culture. In this episode we talk with Mike Horton, Bob Godfrey, Dennis Johnson, Bryan Estelle, and David VanDrunen.
Over the summer, in preparation for season three, Office Hours sent each member of the faculty to a deserted island for a little R & R. Well, we did not actually send each member to an island but we did get everyone into the Office Hours studio and we did enjoy talking about the five books they would want on a desert island and why. Those episodes are being edited now and will be released throughout the season.
This season Office Hours also talks with W. Robert Godfrey and David Hall about Reformed worship, with Mike Horton about his new book For Calvinism, and about why some Protestants are attracted to Eastern Orthodoxy, and with W. Robert Godfrey about why some Protestants are attracted to Roman Catholicism. We are scheduled to sit down this year with Carl Trueman, Kevin DeYoung, and Richard Muller as they visit the campus. The full schedule is below.
