S4 E5: Athanasius’ Festal Letter (AD367)

Welcome to Season 4 of Down Under Theology, a podcast equipping and encouraging Australian Christians to get down and under the theology impacting the life and mission of the church.

In season 4, we are sinking our teeth into Church History! We'll look at key moments in the history of the church and discover their significance for the life and mission of the church today.

In the fifth episode of season 4, we conclude our short mini-series looking at the factors that helped to stabilize the church as it started to grow – church government, creeds, and the canon. This week, we dig into Athansius' Festal Letter which, among other things, lists the books of the Bible. We have a discussion about the recognition and reception of the canon, and the implications for the church today.
