    Amy Peterson: Reclaiming Virtue in an Age of Hypocrisy

    Amy Peterson: Reclaiming Virtue in an Age of Hypocrisy

    “I think hope is acting towards the belief that all things will be made new, towards the belief that God’s kingdom will come here on earth even when we can’t see evidence of it.” — Amy Peterson
    Listen in as Women in the Academy and Professions associate Caroline Triscik interviews writer, teacher, and postulant Amy Peterson as we discuss Christian virtue, our current American political climate, and her most recent book, Where Goodness Still Grows: Reclaiming Virtue in an Age of Hypocrisy. Having grown up in conservative evangelical Christianity, Amy unpacks over half a dozen virtues she recalls learning about in her upbringing and reimagines them, viewing them through the lens of Scripture and its cultural context. With intellect, humor, and compassion, Amy invites us to reimagine these virtues in our lives as well, sharing practices that cultivate these virtues and strengthen her connection with Jesus and the love of neighbor. We hope you’ll find this conversation to be a seed of goodness in this season.

    “Because if the kingdom of God is like yeast that gets worked through the whole dough, then it is activated by kneading, but it rises by resting.” — Sarah Akutagawa
    Listen in on a portion of a recent webinar hosted by InterVarsity’s Graduate and Faculty Ministries on Anxiety and Aspiration: Starting Grad School During a Pandemic.

A colleague at my university recommended The Well and this podcast. I wish I had known about this earlier!! How encouraging it is to hear from other people of faith in academia!

So encouraged

It’s really encouraging to hear all these stories of women. I love being uplifted by how their stories are similar to mine and in the ways I learn new things. As a young woman just starting my career, this is giving me life and fresh air, thank you so much!!

Standing on their Shoulders

Wow! Thank you for this podcast, I started with Dr. Benckhuysen’s episode first. As a woman who has just started my M Div program I was so encouraged by her research and work. Thank you for highlighting this for me to use in my Old Testament class as one interpretation. I’m profoundly thankful.
