Living in South Carolina
Over the last 20+ plus years I've had the privilege of training and leading folks all across the globe in non-profit environments, and along the way I've also been able to teach and explore religion, the dynamics of spiritual growth, and how people interpret what they read.
My recent book "An Intimate Revelation" chronicles an unprecedented multi-year research project that investigated what happens when adolescents from around the world read and discuss Jesus’ Parable of the Prodigal Son together. The study gathered together adolescent participants, pastoral leaders, and theologians from several countries to read in conversational communities, and these groups then exchanged their interpretations with each other across cultural and religious distinctions. The result is a helpful step forward in understanding how adolescents make meaning when they read the Bible and how the intercultural reading process can spur participants toward spiritual growth.
