Socrates said, “The unexamined life is not worth living”. Many people avoid examining their own lives out of fear that they’ll find it empty. Dr. Duane Litfin, former president of Wheaton College, gives an exposition on Psalm 127 recommending it as a tool to help us examine our own lives.
Dr. Duane Litfin served for seventeen years (1993-2010) as the seventh president of Wheaton College. He holds an undergraduate degree in biblical studies and a master's degree in theology. His two doctorates are from Purdue University (Ph.D., Rhetorical Theory and Communication) and Oxford University (D.Phil., New Testament). He came to Wheaton from Memphis, TN where he served the First Evangelical Church as Senior Pastor. Prior to that he spent a decade as an Associate Professor at Dallas Theological Seminary. Dr. Litfin’s writings have appeared in numerous journals and periodicals, and he is the author of several books, most recently Conceiving the Christian College (Eerdmans) and Word vs. Deed: Resetting the Scales to a Biblical Balance (Crossway). He and his wife Sherri have three married children and nine grandchildren. In the intervals between his family responsibilities and his writing, speaking and teaching ministry, Dr. Litfin enjoys the game of golf and recreational reading.
