Welcome to Season 6! We are so glad to be back with you as we pray and speak with other Christians which helps us grow in the Holy Spirit! We are excited to have a conversation with The Rev. Dr. Amy Peeler. Rev. Dr. Peeler is Associate Professor of New Testament at Wheaton College as well as Associate Rector at St. Mark’s Church in Geneva, IL. We are also joined by her husband Dr. Lance Peeler (who will join us more fully in a bonus episode on love, marriage, calling, and ministry).
Today we talk with Rev. Dr. Peeler about her new book “Women and the Gender of God.” It is an insightful and robust theological book that is amazingly accessible to every day readers! We will discuss God, gender, God's gender, women, and why all this has such a huge impact on our following Christ!
We begin with a prayer (00:41), our lunch menu (01:38) and Amy's own story of faith in Christ (03:11), how God called her to be a professor and into the priesthood (08:30), what compelled her to write this book (11:02), why God the Son is "a male like no other" (17:59), how she envisioned God the Father growing up and if it has changed (28:14), the hardest part of the book to write (32:51), her hope for people in the pew who read this book (39:35), and a final prayer and blessing (43:01).
