The world around us deserves our awe and wonder, but we can make the error of believing the good things of this world are the best we can have - we can idolize the creation and forget the Creator. On the other hand, if we believe that because this world is secondary to the next then all of our earthly endeavors are meaningless, we can be indifferent to God's works. Is there a third way? In this episode, Brian shares Hans Boersma's essay on "How to Look for Heaven in Earth," and how living in the created order can ready us to better know the Creator Himself.
Ashley and Hans Boersma talk about the whole point of life — moving toward union with God and what the blessed life looks like now.

What is Christian Platonism? Matthew Barrett and Hans Boersma
What should we think of Plato? Do his ideas have any profit for Christianity? Can the Platonic philosophical heritage serve Christianity as a handmaiden to biblical interpretation and theological construction? These questions concerning the relationship between philosophy and theology have been discussed and debated by Christians from the very beginning. At the heart of the… Download Audio
New Creation Conversations Episode 038 - Dr. Hans Boersma on the Patristics, the Atonement, Sacramental Theology, and Five Things Theologians Wish Biblical Scholars Knew
New Creation Conversations
Welcome to episode thirty-eight of New Creation Conversations. In today’s conversation I am joined by a long-time friend and very significant theologian, Dr. Hans Boersma. Hans and I got to know one another well twenty-something years ago when we spent a summer together at Calvin College studying and writing about eschatology with Miroslav Volf. A few years later essays from both of us were used in a book edited by John Sanders entitled Atonement and Violence: A Theological Conversation (published by Abingdon Press).Hans has gone on to have an amazing career as a prolific and internationally noted theologian. He has written over a dozen books on subjects like the patristics, the atonement and sacramental theology. Hans taught for several years at both Regent College and Trinity Western University in Canada. More recently he has been named Chair of the Order of St. Benedict Servants of Christ Endowed Professor of Ascetical Theology at Nashotah House – a unique Anglo-Catholic Seminary formed in Benedictine practices in Wisconsin.Some of our conversation centers around Han’s most recent book – published by IVP Academic Press – entitled Five Things Theologians Wish Biblical Scholars Knew. There is a companion book that goes with it – written by a previous podcast guest, Scot McKnight, entitled Five Things Biblical Scholars Wish Theologians Knew. I have learned a great deal from Hans across the years – especially related to the theology of the patristic and medieval ages and the richness of sacramental theology. He always invites me to think more deeply and more broadly about the reality of Christ in our midst. So thankful for Hans and his commitment to Christian scholarship. And I’m thankful to get to bring this conversation to you. Here’s my conversation with Dr. Hans Boersma.
