Bavcast Episode 2: The Wonderful Works of God, Man's Highest Good, Part 2
NOTE FROM ANDREW, October 19, 2021:
Some have asked me since the original publication of this episode about the stance on COVID-19 restrictions that I took in this episode. The short answer is, no, I do not. Bear in mind that this episode was recorded within mere days of the beginning of the global outbreak of COVID-19, and the prospects for the virus' impact were far more grim at the time than ever came to realization. As time went by, as restrictions became more strict, and as the virus' impact was far less than initially intended, much of my opinions on the matter changed, and I do share grave concerns about continued restrictions and their implications on the church and religious liberty in the U.S. and elsewhere. In hindsight, this was a rush to judgment based on early information. I have decided, in the interest of transparency and continuity, to not edit or delete the episode as I do believe it still contains useful content and also shows that I am willing to learn from mistakes and accept correction. You can contact me at email@example.com if you wish to know more.
Caleb, Marc, and Andrew continue Chapter 1 of The Wonderful Works of God, discussing the positive aspects of Bavinck's teaching on God being man's highest good. They apply Bavinck's thoughts and Psalm 49 to the present COVID-19 crisis.
Also in this episode, information about other editions of The Wonderful Works of God available in English.
