Welcome to episode 25! Today’s episode features Steve Okey’s conversation with Andrew Prevot of Boston College! Their conversation ranges from how prayer shaped Andrew’s interest in theology, the relationship between prayer and liberation theology, and the need for more sophisticated gender analysis in the study of mysticism. Dr. Prevot also speaks about his love for the Advent hymn “Creator of the Stars of Night” and makes his case for why he could be the patron saint of dog walkers.
Prof. Andrew Prevot is an assistant professor of theology at Boston College in Chestnut Hill, MA. He earned his BA from Colorado College, and his MTS and PhD from the University of Notre Dame. He recently published his first book, Thinking Prayer (University of Notre Dame Press, 2015), which won the College Theology Society’s Best Book in Theology Award for 2015. It will also be the subject of a forthcoming symposium from Syndicate.
Special thanks to the College Theology Society for allowing this episode to be recorded at the 2016 annual meeting.
