GREENVILLE, SC/WAKE FOREST, NC (September 1, 2021) – BJU Seminary, Bob Jones University (BJU) School of Religion and Steve Noble, host of the nationally syndicated Steve Noble Show, announced today they will partner to present Theology Thursday with BJU Seminary beginning with the September 2 broadcast at 4 p.m. Eastern Time.
Each Thursday, the program will be devoted to conversations with members of the faculty and leadership of the Seminary and the School of Religion to deliver next-level scholarship and teaching in a relatable way to help everyday Christians.
The premiere episode of Theology Thursday with BJU Seminary will feature Steve Pettit, president of BJU Seminary.
Pettit stated, “BJU Seminary’s and School of Religion’s partnership with the Steve Noble Show brings together champions of proclaiming God’s invincible and unchanging Word clearly and fearlessly. Together, Steve and our outstanding professors will serve the church by applying next-level Bible insights to help pastors and everyday Christians alike to deal with the confusion, dislocation and isolation that culture is generating and realize the resulting Gospel opportunity.”
Noble said, “No educational institution in America is more committed than BJU Seminary and Bob Jones University to the mission and vision of the Steve Noble Show – to equip Christians to engage the culture with the understanding that while politics is important, the Gospel is preeminent. Like all our programming, Theology Thursday will be a deep, no-holds-barred, and purely and unapologetically biblical dive into the real-life issues the church is grappling with today, through the eyes of experts with the proven knowledge and capability to bring Scriptural principles to life in a fallen 21st-century world.”
In addition to Dr. Pettit, faculty expected to make regular appearances on Theology Thursday include:
- Dr. Alan Benson, Bob Jones University executive vice president for student development and ministry advancement who oversees the Seminary

About The Steve Noble Show
The Steve Noble Show is a syndicated Christian talk radio show heard daily on 33 stations nationwide, as well as via podcast and on Facebook and YouTube Live (until they cancel him). On Steve’s show there are “No Sacred Cows” — meaning, there is no issue that Steve is unwilling to address head-on with a robust Christian worldview. The TRUTH of God’s Word along with the GRACE that flows out of the Gospel makes for engaging and compelling Christian radio for the Believer and unbeliever alike. And while Steve talks about the political realm regularly, he knows that The Gospel is pre-eminent and the only true Hope for America…and Americans.
