Why Does the History of Ideas Matter for Us?

cropped-ExploringHope.pngThis week we discuss the history of ideas with my good friend Dr. John Wilsey. It may not immediately sound like the kind of topic that would be very interesting or applicable, but Dr. Wilsey, an expert in intellectual history, shows how fundamental history is to our faith. After all, we believe in a historical incarnation, death, and resurrection that the whole flow of human history centers on. So, our study and understanding of history shouldn’t be just an afterthought or even a hobby; it should shape us and guide us. Dr. Wilsey points to individuals such as Alexis de Tocqueville and others who have so much to teach us about culture and faith. Tune in!
