Dangerous Calling: The Purpose of Theology
Theology is gorgeous. The study of God in the pages of Scripture is an expansive and engaging task. But for a pastor, theology can quickly turn into a dangerous "world of ideas." In this short clip, Paul David Tripp explains how theology is not an end in itself, but a means to the end.
Scott Anderson of Desiring God interviews Paul Tripp about his latest book: ’A Dangerous Calling’. After traveling the globe and speaking to thousands of churches worldwide, Paul reveals some serious dangers of pastoral ministry. In these interviews Scott and Paul discuss the spiritual life of the pastor and the community of people that trains, calls, relates to and restores him.
