paulcatpetz-hispicThis week, (I know…we always say this) is a very special Homebrewed Christianity Podcast. It’s one of those moments where we visit that rummage sale that happens every 500 years and find some pearls of great price. It’s John Calvin’s 500th birthday. In this episode, Tripp interviews Paul Capetz, a progressive reformed theologian at United Seminary. Paul reflects on how Calvin has inspired him, while rejecting calvinism as a label.

Tripp first met Paul at the recent Transforming Theology Conference at Claremont.
