Dr. Scott Harrower, Ridley College, Melbourne Australia

Dr. Scott Harrower, Associate Professor of Theology and History at Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia, has written a timely and significant book: God of All Comfort: A Trinitarian Response to the Horrors of This World (Lexham Press, 2019).  Prior to his academic career, he grew up in Argentina and saw the horrors that went on there.  Then he became a trauma nurse and saw deeply disturbing things.  The world is full of horrors: dismemberment, assault, disease, death.  How do we make it through?  Dr. Harrower has written a terrific book that brings together insights from philosophy, theology, psychology and medical studies.  You need to hear this!  If not now, then one day.

To hear the podcast on The Stone Chapel (about 20 minutes) 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
