Strong Women

Jun 7, 2023

Our guest today is Dr. Melissa Cain Travis, an Affiliate Faculty member at Colorado Christian University’s Lee Strobel Center for Evangelism and Applied Apologetics. Melissa loves to read about, talk about, teach about, and discuss ideas—from philosophy to faith to the relationship between faith and science. We talk about the importance of “intellectual discipleship”: loving God with our minds, including how to foster that love in small, doable ways in our learning, with those around us, and in our own churches
