Joy Moore, preaching professor and soon to be academic dean at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, has long been a strong voice for orthodoxy and evangelical renewal in United Methodism. She’s the new president of the Wesleyan Theological Society, which includes theologians from across Methodist denominations.
In my interview with Moore, she discusses the very promising rise of a new generation of scholars committed to orthodoxy with Wesleyan distinctives, especially within United Methodism. She also explains how Methodism, with its spiritually egalitarian ethos and attention both to personal and societal redemption, might be uniquely equipped for today’s protests and social upheavals.
Moore is a formidable voice for Wesleyan Christianity. I hope you enjoy our exchange.
