Carver Cast: Season 1
Episode 11: Professor Paul C. H. Lim - October 15, 2020

This week, we sat down with Professor Paul Lim, Associate Professor of the History of Christianity. 

Professor Lim is an award-winning historian of Reformation- and post-Reformation Europe. His latest book, Mystery Unveiled: The Crisis of the Trinity in Early Modern England (Oxford, 2012), won the 2013 Roland H. Bainton Prize as the best book in history/theology by the Sixteenth Century Society and Conference. He has published two other books in that area: The Cambridge Companion to Puritanism (Cambridge, 2008); and In Pursuit of Purity, Unity, and Liberty: Richard Baxter’s Puritan Ecclesiology in Context (Brill, 2004). 

In addition, history of evangelicalism and global Christianities are his other foci of research.  Currently, he is writing a book on the transformation of global evangelical attitudes toward and endeavors on eradication of human trafficking and structural poverty. 

Professor Lim holds a B.A. from Yale University (1990), an M.Div. from the Biblical Theological Seminary (1995), a Th.M. from Princeton Theological Seminary (1997), and a Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge (2001). 

This is the final episode of The Carver Cast, Season 1. Please stay tuned for Season 2, anticipated in 2021! In the meantime, our team continues to engage with Christian faculty, and you can visit us at for updates and other resources. 


The Carver Cast engages with Christian faculty in higher education and highlights the work of those faculty to bridge connections between university, church, and society. In doing so, it seeks to disrupt the perceptions that Christians are “anti-intellectual” and that higher education is “anti-Christian.” Tune in for a wide-ranging discussion with faculty around the country, with mediocre production quality but excellent content!

Penina Laker and John Inazu are Carver Project faculty fellows and members of the faculty at Washington University in St. Louis, where Laker is assistant professor of communication design and Inazu is a professor of law and religion.
