Scott Sunquist and I just missed crossing each other’s paths at Fuller Theological Seminary. Shortly before I registered as a student, Scott wrapped up his time as the Dean of Intercultural Studies at Fuller where he also was a professor of church history. Now, Scott serves as president of Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary where he also teaches missiology. He’s written a new book on Christian history and the global church and it is incredibly thought-provoking. (Even though Scott has literally written graduate-level textbooks on the subject, I can say, this new title is as inviting as it is intriguing.) In other words, if you’re a history fan or a theology buff – this conversation is for you!
