Trueman on ditching the Evening Service

Carl Trueman spoke in Stranmillis EPC a few weeks ago on the subject ‘The reformation – this stupid and pernicious tragedy?’, a title which was ‘borrowed’ from a recent lecture in Belfast by Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch.

In light of his comments during the lecture on Luther coming to the belief that God is primarily present through the proclamation of his Word, he was asked for his views on talk of scrapping – or not starting with – two services, for reasons such as freeing the minister up for evangelism.

Trueman gave another lecture the following morning and then preached on the Lord’s Day morning:

‘Whither Calvinism-challenges facing the reformed church today’

2 Kings 2 v15-25 ‘Surprising grace, surprising judgement’

The audio of the 8 lectures he gave in Dublin on the following two days is also available here.
