Thinking Fellows is the best Christian podcast I've found for people wanting to learn more about fundamental concepts in Christianity, as someone who is converting and not highly theologically literate. Though it is explicitly Lutheran, it's always clear to me when something is specifically about Lutheranism and how it may compare to other denominations. Well done - you're doing the Lord's work!

Great episode guys! One minor caveat, however, namely that Abelard represents exemplarist theories. Among references by Johnson (T&T Companion) that support that it is a false claim are Thomas Williams' Sin, Grace, and Redemption, and Philip Quinn's Abelard on Atonement. Anyone have a comment on this point? Thanks!
