A fascinating journey into an important aspect of Australian evangelicalism’s family story with Senior Pastor of Perth’s Providence Church, Rory Shiner.

We look at the amazing legacy of former Sydney Vice Principal of Moore Theological College Donald Robinson, his fresh reading of the Scriptures, fathering of the Australian biblical theological movement, what became known as the ‘Knox-Robinson view of church’ and remarkable new insights into the Jew Gentile relationships in the New Testament.

Plus how Robinson shaped a subsequent generation of significant leaders theologically, including Phillip Jensen and Graham Goldsworthy.

The interview coincides with the release of a further two books in the Donald Robinson collection.
