Hermeneutics & Apologetics - Special Guest: Dr. Leo Percer
On this episode, Dr. Leo Percer joins the podcast to discuss the intersection of hermeneutics and apologetics.
Dr. Percer grew up near the Mississippi River in Millington, Tennessee, where he received a call to the ministry of teaching while attending First Baptist Church. Pursuing that call sent him on an educational journey that includes two Masters degrees and a PhD. This journey provided opportunities to minister in a variety of capacities, including youth ministry, children’s ministry, small groups, and homeless ministry. Upon completion of his PhD, Dr. Percer taught as an adjunct at both Baylor University and McLennan Community College in Waco, Texas. He began teaching at the Liberty University School of Divinity in 2004 and teaches a variety of New Testament classes including: Hermeneutics, Greek, New Testament Orientation 1 & 2, the Gospel of John, Hebrews, 1 & 2 Peter, Life of Christ, and New Testament World. He also directs the Ph.D. Program for divinity and teaches a variety of biblical studies classes. Dr. Percer lives in Lynchburg, VA with his wife Lisa Percer and their two children.
