Interview: Joanne Jung

Joe and Jimmy were honored to have dr. Joanne Jung on the podcast to talk about her books and the Puritan practice of “conference.” Dr. Jung, or “JJ” as Jimmy calls her, is the Associate Dean of Online Education and Faculty Development, and Associate Professor of Biblical and Theological Studies at Biola University. She is the author of Knowing Grace: Cultivating a Lifestyle of Godliness, Godly Conversation: Rediscovering the Puritan Practice of Conference, and The Lost Discipline of Conversation: Surprising Lessons in Spiritual Formation Drawn from the English Puritans.

We ask Dr. Jung, what is conference? How does the puritan practice of conference differ from the average church’s small group ministry? What is the role of Scripture in conference? Why has the church lost this practice? We highly recommend her books and hope you will pick them up.
