Thank you to fellow New Testament scholar and friend Nijay Gupta for interviewing me regarding my recently published book with Mohr Siebeck. Nijay asked me four great questions:

1) How did you become interested in the topic of “moral transformation” in ancient philosophy?

2) What is the misunderstanding you want to address or the “gap” you are trying to fill in this book? 

3) Why should pastors and students of the New Testament care about conversations in the Greco-Roman philosophers about the mind and moral progress?

4) It seems like the book anticipates further work on Paul. Are you going to write a sequel?

The interview really had me thinking. If you want to hear about how I first became interested in ancient philosophy, or about the book and its contributions to the academy, why pastors and students might find it useful, plus some previews on plans for sequel volumes, please click on the link below and check out the interview. Thanks! MJL
