Greetings, faithful readers! We’ve reached our fifth semester of The Intersection and we are changing things up a bit. For any newcomers, you should know that The Intersection was created in Fall 2013 by the Center for Excellence in Christian Scholarship (CECS) to provide an online outlet for ETBU faculty to reflect on what it means to “create and participate in scholarship that embraces a Christian worldview without compromising in the pursuit of scientific truth and intellectual inquiry.” This semester will feature the reflections of two ETBU faculty bloggers – Dr. Warren Johnson & Dr. Zachary Beck. Because we are moving from a three posts per week to two posts per week format, The Intersection will publish on Tuesdays @ 1pm and Thursdays @ 1pm.
Meet Our Bloggers, Fall ’15
Dr. Zachary Beck is an Assistant Professor of English in the School of Humanities at East Texas Baptist University. This is Dr. Beck’s first semester as a faculty member at ETBU. Dr. Beck earned his Ph.D in English from Baylor University; his MA in English from the University of Florida; and his BA in English & Political Science from the University of Florida. Dr. Beck also serves as the Director of the Honors Program at ETBU.
Dr. Beck will post his reflections on Tuesdays @ 1pm.
This year begins Dr. Warren Johnson‘s eleventh year as a member of the ETBU faculty. Dr. Johnson is a Professor of Religion in the School of Christian Studies. He earned his Ph.D & M.Div from New Orleans Theological Seminary and his BS from the University of Southwestern Louisiana.
Dr. Johnson will post his reflections on Thursdays @ 1pm.
We are once again looking forward to an enlightening semester as these two bloggers share their unique perspectives on faith, teaching, learning, and where they all intersect. If you are a regular reader of the blog, we will look forward to your visit on Tuesday & Thursday this semester.
