Release Date April 21, 2014
Original Release Date: June 3, 2013
A.W. Tozer said about the Scriptures, “It is not only a book which was once spoken, but a book which is now speaking.” Melinda Schmidt and James Wilhoit talk about the centuries old practice of lectio divina and the ways in which that Scripture-reading practice uniquely transforms our faith and our churches today.
In This Episode
James Wilhoit is Scripture Press Professor of Christian Education at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. He is the author of Spiritual Formation as if the Church Mattered, coeditor of the Dictionary of Biblical Imagery (IVP Academic) and coauthor, with Leland Ryken, of Effective Bible Teaching.
Melinda is a visionary who appreciates observing how the complexities of culture and faith influence one another. Her core words are freedom, orderliness, twirling, beauty and seed-planting ideas. For her, life is good when she is free to muse, express and—frankly—eat pizza or her homemade blueberry pie.
