Don J. Payne – Already Sanctified

Episode: Conversations on sanctification can often leave Christians feeling spiritually inadequate and discouraged about their lack of spiritual growth and maturity, but Don J. Payne insists that this arises from a faulty view of sanctification. Instead, Scripture’s view of sanctification, which involves being fitted for the presence of God and the purposes of God, should be understood as the sure foundation for the Christian life. Listen as theologian Don J. Payne joins Erin for a congenial and collegial interdisciplinary conversation on his newest book: Already Sanctified (Baker, 2020).

Guest: Dr. Don J. Payne is currently the Associate Professor of Theology and Christian Formation at Denver Seminary, where he has served in various faculty roles since 1998. Prior to earning his PhD in Systematic Theology from the University of Manchester, Don served a number of years in pastoral ministry in various churches in Tennessee and Colorado. In addition to Already Sanctified, he has published Surviving the Unthinkable (Resource Publications, 2015), and The Theology of the Christian Life in J. I. Packer’s Thought (Paternoster, 2015). A proud West Texan from the Permian Basin region, Don has a penchant for hunting, fixing his truck, and Wolf Brand Chili.
