White Horse Inn: Conversational Theology

The Baptist Tradition with Guest Dr. Matthew Hall

This series has highlighted the substantial overlap between the traditions seated at the White Horse Inn table, while also honestly examining the differences between them. In this episode, Justin Holcomb sits down with Matthew Hall, provost and senior vice president for academic administration of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. They look at the historical development and complexity within the Baptist tradition and what it means to be confessional and congregational. In the process, they also explore and celebrate how traditions with significant differences on polity and the sacraments can join forces in serving, caring, and praying for each other in gospel ministry.
