Theology Network is changing

UCCF continues to be committed to equipping today's Theology students to live and speak for Jesus in their chosen field of study.
Theology Network is now a part of UCCF's Leadership Network, so you can now find our resources at www.uccfleadershipnetwork.org/theology. As a result, this site will be taken down at the beginning of 2019.


In the mid-1500’s the Reformer Martin Luther and his wife Katie became famous for their hospitality. In their home, a big old ex-monastery called “The Black Cloister”, they hosted students, colleagues and friends for meals. With good company, good food, and Katie’s home-brewed beer (and their children tearing about after the dog), Luther and his friends discussed theology, life, and everything - a regular gathering which was recorded as his “Table Talk”.

In the spirit of such refined pursuits, Theology Network is proud to present our very own Table Talk. We’re taking time to settle down by the fire with key evangelical leaders and chat about issues that matter - and we’re releasing it as a podcast so you can download our conversations direct to your ipod. So come and join us at the table - there’s plenty of room!

Any book recommendations? Other than John Owen's 'Overcoming Sin and Temptation'... obviously.

Thanks Dan. Just really enjoyed listening in Canterbury NZ.

Dear Mike and Tim, I just wanted to say thank you so much for a brilliant table talk. I feel genuinely refreshed spiritually, having been reminded of the joy and freedom of justification and how easy it is for us as Christians to begin to look to the transforming work of sanctification in our lives as the basis for our status before God. Before we know it we feel like slaves again, with an increasingly heavy burden of works-salvation on our backs. For me I often don't even get as far as worrying about how God sees me at all, simply how I appear to men. Thanks for practical advice about how to combat this by laughing at yourself. Man-pleasing is such slavery, but it's also such folly if the gospel is true. It must ultimately flow out of a lack-lustre belief in the real promises of God.
