Tripp Fuller

Luther Theological Seminary

Tripp just moved back to North Carolina after three years as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Theology & Science at the University of Edinburgh. He recently released Divine Self-Investment: a Constructive Open and Relational Christology, the first book in the Studies in Open and Relational Theology series. For over 14 years Tripp has been doing the Homebrewed Christianity podcast (think on-demand internet radio) where he interviews different scholars about their work so you can get nerdy in traffic, on the treadmill, or doing the dishes. Last year it had over 4 million downloads. It also inspired a book series with Fortress Press called the Homebrewed Christianity Guides to... topics like God, Jesus, Spirit, Church History, etc. Tripp is a very committed and (some of his friends think overly ) engaged Lakers fan and takes Star Wars and Lord of the Rings very seriously.

Anna Sieges

Garner-Webb University

Anna Sieges holds a Ph.D. in Biblical Literature from Baylor University. She teaches all manner of Bible things at Gardner-Webb University where she enjoys engaging with students on biblical interpretation, and curiosities that arise when reading and studying. You can also catch Dr. Sieges' work in short videos, blogs, podcasts, etc. on The Bible for Normal People. Dr. Sieges specializes in the prophetic literature of the Book of the Twelve (Minor Prophets).  She enjoys rom-coms, Mexican food, and not taking herself too seriously. 

John Dominic Crossan

Professor Emeritus DePaul University

John Dominic Crossan is an Irish-American biblical scholar with two-year post-doctoral diplomas in exegesis from Rome’s Pontifical Biblical Institute and in archeology from Jerusalem’s École Biblique. He has been a mendicant friar and a catholic priest, a Co-Chair of the Jesus Seminar, and a President of the Society of Biblical Literature. His focus, whether scholarly or popular, whether in books, videos, or lectures, is on the historical Jesus as the norm and criterion for the entire Christian Bible. His reconstructed Jesus incarnates nonviolent resistance to the Romanization of his Jewish homeland and the Herodian commercialization of his Galilean lake as present program and future hope of a transformed world and transfigured earth. Crossan’s method is to situate biblical texts within the reconstructed matrix of their own their own genre and purpose, their own time and place, and to hear them accurately for then before accepting or rejecting them for now. 

Sunday Options

We invite you to join our partner churches for worship. They will both have one of our Bible nerds rocking the pulpit during the service.
