Amy Peeler is a Fellow with the Logos Institute, an Associate Professor of New Testament at Wheaton College, and Associate Rector at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Geneva, IL. Her primary research centers in the Epistle to the Hebrews, which has prompted her to explore ancient rhetoric, the use of the Old Testament in the New, Israel’s sacrificial system, atonement, family and inheritance in the Ancient World, and theological language.

Jonathan C Rutledge is a producer and host of the Logos Institute’s official podcast, Pogos. He holds a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Oklahoma, where he studied under Linda T. Zagzebski, and he is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in divinity at the University of St Andrews under Alan J. Torrance. His primary academic interests lie in the areas of epistemology, philosophy of religion, and systematic & analytic theology. His current projects include work on the nature of forgiveness, a sacrificial account of atonement, philosophical Arminianism as an account of divine creation, and constructing a new Foley-inspired account of epistemic rationality & defeat.

Stephanie Nicole Nordby is also a producer and co-host of Pogos. She is a doctoral student in theology working under supervisors N.T. Wright and Oliver Crisp at the University of St Andrews. Her dissertation project is a book on Christology in which she hopes to integrate recent work in biblical studies on Second Temple Judaism, the philosophy of Hebrew Scripture, and the idea of the Incarnation as a revelatory act. Prior to her time at St Andrews, Nordby received a Ph.D. in philosophy under the supervision of Linda Zagzebski at the University of Oklahoma. Her dissertation focused on divine predication and attributes, biblical genres and philosophy of language, and classical theism and the Hebrew Scriptures. In addition to her interest in analytic and exegetical theology, Nordby is interested in metaphysics, animal ethics, and virtue ethics.
