1. Nearly two decades ago, Pope Benedict XVI (formerly Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger) delivered what is often called the Regensburg lecture. Though it was meant to rekindle the relationship between faith and reason (or science and theology) in higher education, much of the world—or at least the Muslim majority world—got distracted by a brief reference he made to a fifteenth-century dialogue about Islam, its theological voluntarism, and the consequences of such a view of God.
  2. In episode TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY-SIX, Mike and Wade are joined by Prof. Joshua Johnson from the college to discuss education as formation. Despite Wade’s best efforts, the guys got a little distracted at a few points, but we think it was fun, and the topic is one we hope to return to in the future.
  3. In episode TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY-THREE, Mike, Wade (even though he was just supposed to work the board), Jason, Nick Schmoller, and Dave Scharf discuss Lutheran higher education and the formation of students.
  4. The Thinking Fellows talk about confirmation bias. Is there a benefit to regularly engaging with disagreeable ideas?
  5. Dr. Paulson explores Luther's rebuttal of the adage "Knowledge is Power."
  6. The Thinking Fellows explore the reasons why students go to college.
  7. The Thinking Fellows make a case for reading old books.
  8. We have special guest, Aimee Byrd, on today to talk about her journey in being a woman who studies theology. She shares the purpose on each of her books and how they build off of one another, leading up to her most recent book that we are discussing today on Biblical manhood and womanhood.
  9. We finish up our conversation with Heidi Goehmann on the relationship between mental health and theology.
  10. It's Gretchen's turn to talk about books that have been influential on her life.
