Welcome to the Daily Theology Podcast! This is our very first episode, which features a conversation Stephen Okey had with Julie Hanlon Rubio. We talk about how she went from her interest in theater to studying politics to doing theology, the role of the family in her teaching and research, and her advice for newer theologians. We spoke by phone, so the sound quality could be a little better, but the conversation is absolutely worth it.
Dr. Rubio is a professor of Christian Ethics at Saint Louis University, where she has taught since 1999. Her research focuses on the theology of marriage and the family and on Catholic Social Teaching. She has published two books (A Christian Theology of Marriage and Family
in 2003 and Family Ethics: Practices for Christians
in 2010) and edited another (Readings in Moral Theology No. 15: Marriage
in 2009, co-edited with Charles Curran). Her next book, Between the Personal and Political: Hope for Common Ground is coming from Georgetown University Press in 2016. Dr. Rubio is also a regular contributor at the blog Catholic Moral Theology (you can find her posts here).
