There are few people I respect and admire more than Dr. David S. Dockery, the 15th president of Trinity International University. He is the subject of a recent Festschrift, Convictional Civility: Engaging the Culture in the 21st Century, Essays in Honor of David S. Dockery (B&H, 2015)
We recently sat down for a conversation about the state of Christian higher education, the series he edits for Crossway, and his advice for future leaders.
