Ep. 34 – Kevin Burton & Military-Related Service

Kevin Burton describes a recent conference on military service that was hosted by the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. He highlights a new book on the topic—Adventists and Military Service: Biblical, Historical, and Ethical Perspectives (Frank Hasel, Barna Magyarosi and Stefan Höschele, eds.).

Kevin Burton earned an M.A. in Religion from Andrews University, and he is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in American Religious History at Florida State University.

This interview is a companion to a news piece that Kevin wrote for Adventist Today, so we wanted to get the conversation out as quickly as possible. This meant we had to make time for the conversation right where we were, which was not a recording studio. More on that as the audio rolls.

And the final point I want to note is our podcast’s three-year anniversary. We started the Adventist Peace Radio podcast in April 2016, so I want to take a brief moment to celebrate this milestone and to thank each of you who has shared the journey. A big thanks to you for listening and sharing, and I invite you to stay with us as we explore more ideas and meet more peacemakers in the years ahead….
