About Talbot Magazine

Talbot magazine is published twice a year by the Office of University Marketing at Biola University, and is sent free of charge to alumni, supporters and friends of Biola’s Talbot School of Theology. Opinions expressed are those of the authors or their subjects and do not necessarily represent the official position of Biola University.

Biola University’s mission is biblically centered education, scholarship and service — equipping men and women in mind and character to impact the world for the Lord Jesus Christ.
