Dr. Seble Daniel, a Langham Scholar, is the first female to receive a PhD in Bible and theology in her denomination—the largest in Ethiopia. With the platform of her PhD, she trains even more biblical leaders at the Ethiopian Graduate School of Theology in Addis Ababa, the capital city. And, at the invitation of the government, she is involved in helping educate communities about ending female genital mutilation. Seble is joined by Tigist, one of her students who is taking what Seble taught her and using it to disciple Ethiopia’s next generation. Their conversation with Chris covers a lot of ground—from the history of Christianity in Ethiopia, to the issues facing the church today—and what is needed for the church to impact the surrounding culture.
