GOD: Essence and Energies
July 22, 2007 Length: 36:28
In this program, Steve and Kevin conduct this fascinating interview with professor and author Dr. David Bradshaw--professor of Philosophy and the Philosophy of Religion at the University of Kentucky. Dr. Bradshaw explains for us the distinction between God’s “Essence and Energies”. Understanding this distinction is the key to a major difference between eastern and western Christianity. You should listen to this two or three times--trust us!
"We have no church on our island other than the occasional visiting priest. Ancient Faith Radio is a spiritual lifesaver to us. I was given an iPhone recently and am now connected as if to an I.V. much of the day. I listen to podcast after podcast (now making my way through Jeannie Constantinou's—from the beginning in 2008!) or play holy music while reading my Prologue or the Bible. Now, I've just discovered the blog portal. What a convenience this will be for me. I also receive FB postings daily from various AFR contributors. I am so very, very grateful to all of you who produce this amazing resource for us—especially we who have no regular services, no priest, not even the Eucharist. God sustains us beautifully through our faithfulness to Him, and our ability to be uplifted by the generous sharing of AFR contributors. May He bless all of you, and all of the listeners, richly."
