Dr. Margaret Diddams

My friend and former boss, Dr. Margaret Diddams, recently came to the Lanier Theological Library for a two week research break to investigate some of our great resources on the book of Lamentations. By training Dr. Diddams, Margaret, is an industrial organizations psychologist and she has noticed a number of similarities between the academic literature on resilient leaders and lament. Her thoughts on the subject are fascinating and helpful. This needs to be a book and with time, I’m sure it will be. With Covid-19 especially, church leaders and others are trying to figure out what’s next. Whether people are being fired, laid off or flaming out, these are some insights you need.

To listen to her podcast on “The Stone Chapel” click here.

The Stone Chapel is a podcast of the friends and staff of the Lanier Theological Library in Houston, Texas.  It is hosted by Dr. David Capes, Senior Research Fellow at the library and former faculty member at Houston Baptist University and Wheaton College.  The purpose of the podcast is to bring to our audience great conversations from the world’s leading experts in theology, biblical studies, archaeology, Church history, the Dead Sea Scrolls, ethics, ministry, and a host of other topics close to the mission of the library.

The Lanier Theological Library is a magnet for scholars, church leaders and influencers.  For the last ten years, it has welcomed hundreds of academics and church leaders from across the globe for public lectures, study, panel discussions, consultations, and encouragement.

These podcasts as well as the Lanier library and the Stone Chapel are generously underwritten by Mark and Becky Lanier and the Lanier Theological Library Foundation.  If you have questions or comments, please be in touch: Email david.capes@lanierlibrary.org
