Episode 9: Lonnie Valentine


In this episode Matt and I talk with Lonnie Valentine, Trueblood Chair of Christian Thought. Lonnie graduated from ESR in 1983, went on to Emory University earning a Ph.D. in 1989, after which he returned to teach at ESR. Lonnie primarily teaches courses in the area of peace and justice studies. We recorded the podcast on April 20th, 2017 in Teague Library, the former office of D. Elton Trueblood, because of Lonnie’s connections with Trueblood. Lonnie also brought other items that represented his own formation and what influenced him and can be seen in the picture on the podcast home page at
