The Bruderholz Podcast introduces the faculty of the Vancouver School of Theology in conversation about how their scholarship engages the church and the world God loves. Bruderholz is the name of a restaurant/pub in Basel, Switzerland where the theologian Karl Barth held informal conversations and then classes after his retirement in 1963. Barth said that in the university classroom theology was formal (dogmatics). In the pub it was theology as conversation, trying out ideas (gymnasticos).
We hope to catch that spirit in the conversations on this podcast. Bruderholz is hosted by VST Principal Richard Topping along with Rector’s Cupboard Podcast host and friend of VST, Todd Wiebe. Production by VST student (and Rector’s Cupboard Host) Allison Williams who sometimes joins the conversation.
