On Tuesday I did an interview with Kevin McCullough on WMCA in New York. Each month we take a chapter of my book Credo and discuss it on the air. Since the book is based on the Apostles’ Creed, this is an amazing opportunity to discuss the Christian faith on the number one Christian station in America’s largest city. This month we came to the strangest part of the Creed, the phrase that says of our Lord, “He descended into hell.”

Whenever I am asked about my book or about the Creed, the first question is always about this phrase. Some churches omit it when they recite the Creed because they think it lacks biblical foundation. And there are many misconceptions about what it really means.

Kevin and I had a very lively discussion. You can listen to the interview by clicking here. Our conversation starts about 12-15 minutes into the segment. As always, we welcome your questions and comments.
