Beyond Creation Science
with Tim Martin
For this podcast, Tami Jelinek is joined by guest co-host Shannon Shogren to chat with Tim Martin about his recently published book, Beyond Creation Science.
We discuss the story behind the book, and several key arguments it presents for a local Genesis flood from the text of Scripture itself. We also discuss the cultural and historical context of modern Young Earth Creationism, and its relationship to pre-millennial dispensationalism. Several elements of our discussion come together to emphasize the covenant context for all of Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation. The Bible is truly one story, and Genesis is the beginning of that story.

For this podcast Ward Fenley and Tami Jelinek are joined by special guest John Hedges. We discuss some general trends in preteristic thought and teaching, and contrast them with a Biblical response to fulfilled redemption: moving beyond proving the timing of fulfillment to discover its impact on our lives and relationships. We revisit the "now what?" questions we first asked upon seeing the past fulfillment of "end times" prophetic texts. How do we experience the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies in our lives? What is the chief characteristic of the Kingdom of God, and how do we communicate it with relevance to those around us?
We discuss not only the stagnant movement of preterism and why the movement cannot grow in its present state, but also the primary characteristics needed in the church and kingdom of God to inspire those whose trust is in the finished work of the cross and presence of Jesus Christ.
The Heavens and the Earth
with Brian Maxwell
Ward, Tami and Brian discuss Brian's article, The Heavens and the Earth, which lays out a framework for understanding this metaphorical reference to God's people throughout Scripture. Some specific topics addressed include: the significance of the cosmological creation in Scripture; and the importance of viewing "the heavens and the earth" consistently throughout Scripture, with examples from Genesis, the Psalms, the prophets, New Testament epistles and Revelation. We also touch briefly on specific metaphorical elements of the garden story.
We encourage feedback and participation in this on-going discussion. Please write us with your comments and questions and comments.

Ward and Tami are joined by "the preterist artist" Jim Kessler. We discuss Jim's artwork, with specific emphasis on his two paintings, "Apocalyptic Vision" and "The Scroll and the Serpent," the questions they ask, and the covenantal and redemptive themes throughout Scripture they portray. Specific emphasis ia given to the "creation" account and garden story in the early chapters of Genesis.
