A Conversation with Thomas S. Kidd

In this episode of Signposts, I am joined by Thomas S. Kidd. Dr. Kidd serves as Distinguished Professor of History, James Vardaman Endowed Professor of History, and Associate Director of the Institute for Studies of Religion at Baylor University. A prolific author, he blogs regularly on evangelical history for The Gospel Coalition in collaboration with Justin Taylor, and has written numerous biographies and works on religious history including Benjamin Franklin: The Religious Life of a Founding Father, Baptists in America: A History, and God of Liberty: A Religious History of the American Revolution. I deeply enjoyed this conversation with Dr. Kidd, especially our discussion of his most recent book, Who Is an Evangelical?

You can find the full list of Dr. Kidd’s books here. Be sure to subscribe to Signposts to get new episodes as they are released.

Only when we see how lost we are, we can find our way again. Only when we bury what’s dead can we experience life again. Only when we lose our religion can we be amazed by grace again.
