Mary Poplin

Professor of Education

Claremont University


Professor Poplin earned her PhD from the University of Texas and is a professor in the School of Educational Studies at Claremont Graduate University. In 1996, Professor Poplin also worked for two months with Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta to understand why she said their work was “religious work and not social work.” Her book on this experience, Finding Calcutta was published by InterVarsity Press in 2008 and is also available in Korean and Chinese.


Christian & Buddhist

In just a few words, Prof. Poplin cites Dalai Lama in answering the question beautifully: "Can a person be a Christian and Buddhist at the same time?"


Sin and Freedom

Prof. Poplin explains how secular humanists view sin, and gives an intriguing example where individual freedom -- when taken to its radical limits -- would just appear non-sensical.


Encounter with Jesus

Prof. Poplin shares a dream she had where she came by not only the twelve disciples, but also Jesus Christ her Saviour.
