At BST, I have the opportunity to offer my seminary students a platform to express their cultural and religious views while presenting them with opportunities to dialogue with people and ideas different from their own. This exposure is invaluable in our era of change and diversity. Indeed, highlighting the importance of diverse cultural perspectives goes beyond assignments in my teaching methodology. As an instructor, I also stress to students the importance of finding their voice in academia and the church at large. Broadly speaking, my approach revolves around the concepts of cultural deconstruction and “common cultural themes” as a way to challenge the Eurocentric and colonial conventions that dominate so much of Western biblical interpretation and theology.
