Profiles in Goodwill: Todd Still

Todd D. Still is DeLancey Dean and Hinson Professor at Baylor University’s George W. Truett Theological Seminary in Waco, Texas.

1. Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Texas and was born in Wichita Falls in 1966. My family moved to Meridian when I was 12 and then to Waco when I was 16.

2. What is your favorite verse, book or story in the Bible? Why?

This seems an unfair question, akin to asking me which of my sons I most love! A verse that I place frequently before myself is Philippians 2:5.

I highly value this verse because it calls me to cultivate a Christ-like habit of mind.

3. What is your favorite movie? Why?

Although I enjoy watching movies, I seldom do; if I were to have a favorite movie, it would be “Hoosiers.”

I love it when David beats Goliath.

4. Who are three people you admire?

Willard Still (my father), Condoleezza Rice and N.T. Wright.

5. What is one little-known fact about yourself?

I like ice cream far more than I should.
