Remembering Dr. Billy Abraham - Promoted to Glory

Two weeks ago, Dr. Billy Abraham was promoted to glory. He was a giant figure in the evangelical Wesleyan movement. Billy was on my doctoral dissertation committee, he endorsed my first book, and he was one of the first to push me toward the academy. On today’s podcast, I have a conversation with Drs. Jason Vickers, David Watson, Justus Hunter, and Jerry Walls about Billy’s influence as a teacher, scholar, friend, and champion of the church.

Billy hit on major themes in his work when he endorsed my book Holistic Hospitality. Here’s a little of what he said, “Without these [theological and spiritual] foundations, [which Andy presents] we simply lose heart and energy; with them, we are pulled into a world of divine action that can sustain a lifetime of grinding missionary action.” 

If today’s podcast generates interest in Dr. Abraham’s work, I recommend my audience read his book Waking from Doctrinal Amnesia. Here are some other links that you might find helpful:
