The Pietist Schoolman Podcast, Episode #5: Sciences and Arts

The "High Rise" at Fermilab

It’s time to start addressing some blind spots in our vision for higher education, as Dick Peterson embellishes on his brief remarks about science education in our book from InterVarsity Press and Ken Steinbach discusses the visual arts — utterly absent from that book. Better yet, both talk about teaching — a part of their craft for which each has won awards.
