In our class on “In Christ All Things Hold Together” there have been questions regarding Western Philosophy, especially as we began Chapter II.  To that end I thought it would be useful to post this series of interviews by Rev. Bryan Wolfmueller (Hope Aurora, Table Talk Radio, author of “Has American Christianity Failed?”) with Professor Gregory Schulz (Concordia University, Mequon) regarding the Ten Master Metaphors.  This should be a good primer on Western Philosophy and get you started in your entry to the great conversation.  Enjoy!
