Candid Interview with Terry Johnson

Before I give you this resource, I have two introductions to make.

Terry Johnson is not exactly a household name amongst Baptists like myself, but if I want a true perspective on Reformed worship, I’ve found him to be an excellent resource. Often we see people who have taken on the name “Reformed” as a brand while their eponymous and ecclesial ministries are simply expressions of American evangelicalism plus four or five points of the Synod of Dort. But Reformed worship, Johnson would argue, is the result of a retrieval of Biblical principles that happened in the 16th and 17th centuries. These principles strike to the very root.

Presbycast is a podcast done by two Presbyterians of the Vigorous Sort. Big P Presbyterians, as it were. Their podcast is not polished and slick: don’t expect a table at the White Horse Inn; this is a conversation around a dining room table. But they understand what’s at stake in selling congregational worship to the lowest bidders.

So then, now that we’re all comfortably acquainted: here is one of the guys from Presbycast interviewing Terry Johnson (and Chad Van Dixhoorn) at the recent Reformation Worship Conference. [If you’re worried at all, Tim Challies spoke at this conference.]

Enjoy!
