Reformed Theology (and more) on the City Square Podcast

Summary – Reformed Theology (and more) on the City Square Podcast

On this week’s podcast episode, we have the pleasure of hosting Gregory Baus, the co-host of the Reformed Libertarians Podcast. He’s an independent writer, theologically reformed and politically libertarian. In a candid, off-the-cuff conversation, Gregory shares insights for understanding political libertarianism from a theologically Reformed perspective, among other important topics.
