Flatt’s job, as he sees it, is to link the what the Bible says about who we are, what we ought to think, and how we ought to live with the classics. “Grappling with these questions will be extremely enriching,” he said. “I am there to guide and curate this experience for our students, to introduce students to these great thinkers, and then to say, ‘Go now and dialogue with them.’”
