Episode details

In this edition of the Ministry Minded Podcast, I am honored to talk with Bob Hiller in an attempt to dispel the discord between Paul’s and James’s New Testament treatments on faith and works in order to show that both present a unique face of the gospel diamond.

Bob Hiller serves as the senior pastor of Community Lutheran Church in Escondido, California, where he lives with his wife and three kids. He also ministers as the content editor for The Craft of Preaching.
