The Beauty of Culture Care

Dr. Justin Ariel Bailey

Coaching Call Info

As Christian leaders and educators, we have a powerful opportunity to offer a generative engagement of culture. Join us as we explore how to think about theology and culture as it relates to our teaching, our leading, and our own culture-creating. SCL President Eric Cook interviews Dr. Justin Ariel Bailey on his latest book, Interpreting Your World.

We tackle piercing, complex questions, such as:

How do we define culture? Are we out to win?

What could it mean to reimagine an apologetics of “culture care” rather than “culture war”?

How do we empower students to be rather than to appear?
