Like the original Pietist Schoolman blog, our logo features Caravaggio’s painting of the supper at Emmaus (Luke 24:30-32). Click the image to read my explanation of that choice…

This week: a sneak preview of The Pietist Schoolman Podcast, debuting April 16th!

Normally, these podcasts will be 35-45 minute conversations — starting next week with theologian Roger Olson — but Episode 0 is a brief monologue, a snippet of intellectual autobiography that explains why someone trained as a diplomatic historian started to study the relationship of Pietism to higher education and how that research turned into a blog called The Pietist Schoolman and a book called The Pietist Vision of Christian Higher Education: Forming Whole and Holy Persons.

In this first series of The Pietist Schoolman Podcast, I’ll be expanding that book’s conversation — first with some of its contributors, then gradually bringing in other voices, people who can help us fill the holes in our “whole and holy” vision or view it from the perspective of other Christian traditions.

Looking forward to hearing what you think! You can comment here or at our Facebook page, or e-mail me directly.

(In addition to the acknowledgments at the end of the episode, let me add here a special thanks to my friend, colleague, and frequent collaborator Sam Mulberry — who is helping to engineer many of these episodes and also designed the podcast logo.)
