Professors, In Rooms, Getting Coffee
You’re listening to Professors, In Rooms, Getting Coffee, an exploration of truth, beauty, wisdom, and goodness at the intersection of faith and scholarship. We look for present and future hope, while attempting to honestly investigate the problems facing humanity and the church. By turns academic, devotional, serious and relaxed, Justin Winzenburg (Ph.D. New Testament) and Stephen W. Jones (Ph.D. International Development) commit to following truth even when that leads us into uncomfortable spaces of self-reflection and repentance. We also anticipate hope; present and future, and actively pursue it.
