Theology for Everyone

September 24, 2015

Pastor and author Kevin DeYoung joins us to discuss the role of studying doctrine in the life of ordinary individuals, and even young people. His new children’s book, The Biggest Story, tells the overarching message of the Bible for little ones and their families. We also chat on several other fun tidbits – food, parenting, women’s ministries, and heaven. Kevin is senior pastor of University Reformed Church in East Lansing, Michigan, near Michigan State University. He and his wife Trisha have six young children: Ian, Jacob, Elizabeth, Paul, Mary, and Benjamin.

  • I loved this podcast! And what a cool book. It’s definitely going to the top of my daughters’ wish list.

    On women’s ministries, I’ve been part of two different churches with very different women’s programs, and I can see both sides of the issue. The church I grew up and got married in (non-denominational, Evangelical & Reformed) had really good women’s Bible studies. They were mainly led by the pastor’s and elder’s wives, and they specifically addressed issues women are working through. We did topical studies on things like hospitality, marriage, or how to teach theology as mothers to our children. Super helpful stuff, along with prayer groups with other women where you can open up in ways you can’t with men.

    The church we’re in now (after moving for a job) is also a good church, but the women’s ministries makes me uncomfortable at times. Most of the studies are on topics/books of the Bible that aren’t issues specific to women, and could just as easily be a mixed group study. Plus, most of the studies are from celebrity women teachers, and I’d much rather be taught by the godly older women in our own church who I love and respect . So, generally I go to the coed studies with my husband. But I think there’s a real place for good women’s Bible studies, as well as MOPS groups and things like that. Just like I’m a fan of men-only fellowship and teaching times. I know those have helped my husband become the awesome guy he is today.

    Anyway, thanks for the podcast!
