458-508 – Scott Daniels, Dean of APU's School of Theology ( and senior pastor at Pasadena First Church of the Nazarene (, his radio show "Faith Works" can be heard Sunday mornings on KKLA at 1130am.  His latest two books are:  The First 100 Days: A Pastor's Guide, and Seven Deadly Spirits: The Message of Revelation's Letters for Today's Church.  Scott and Debbie have four kids.  

Today, I ask Scott to talk about some of the academic threats to a Christian seminary or school of theology, namely, the effort to undermine the authority of scripture from one side and widespread anti-intellectualism from the other.  Many seminaries study God as a subject matter, as though He were a fictional being like a unicorn.

512-523 – Scott Daniels,
