Miroslav Volf on The Paul Edwards Program

Miroslav Volf was grew up in Communist Yugoslavia the son of a Christian pastor. He is Henry B. Wright Professor of Theology at Yale Divinity School and the Director of the Yale Center for Faith and Culture.

He joined me for an extended conversation about his new book, Allah: A Christian Response in  which he makes several (seemingly) controversial assertions:

    • What the Qur’an denies about God as the Holy Trinity has been denied by every great teacher of the church in the past and ought to be denied by Christians today.
    • A person can be both a practicing Muslim and 100 percent Christian without denying core convictions of belief and practice.
    • How two faiths, worshipping the same God, can work toward the common good under a single government.

  1. Paul
    …..”God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets”,,
    The archaic just gets out, 🙂
    I suppose it’s still hid in the heartt

    Dr. Volf
    …..”who have ‘RECEIVED” the gift of salvation”
    …..”My hope is that salvation in Christ will reach every person”
    …..”they will not be reformed”
    ~~~~definitely not a 5 pointer ~~~~

    The position that we pray to the “same” God is problematic.;
    Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

    A tender spirit in this guest. Good interview!

  2. As A former Muslim I can say with all my heart Miroslav Volf is totally out to lunch, if the god of Islam is the same God of the bible i never would have left.
