What’s the Res? - Summer 1 - Debate in the Southern Baptist Convention: A Conversation with Phillip Herring (Debate in Public Life)

June 4, 2019

This episode breaks from our usual pattern of focusing on resolution analysis to consider where debate happens outside of tournament competition. Josh interview his dad, Dr. Phillip Herring, about the role debate plays in the largest denominational gathering in the United States each year. Just in time for #SBC19, this episode explains the nature of the convention, the way Baptists function democratically, and how debate gives every Messenger a voice to leadership. Check it out!
