Meet Matthew Coomber. Coomber teaches theology courses at St. Ambrose. He and Ryan discuss the complicated path which lead him to become a theology professor. Coomber converted to Buddhism from Christianity during undergrad. After five years, he converted back to Christianity, went on to get a Ph.D. in Biblical Studies, and is an ordained Episcopal priest.
They also discuss what it’s like to live abroad, Coomber’s involvement as a “red zone” during protests, his anti-war efforts in the early 2000s, and so much more!
