These courses involve one-day seminars devoted to examining major Christian pastor-theologians in order to explore their understandings of the gospel, the witness of the church and engagement with culture and spiritual formation. The first semester will examine such figures as Cyprian, Ambrose, Gregory of Nazianzus, Hildegard von Bingen, Bernard of Clairvaux and Menno Simons. The second semester will focus on more contemporary leaders, such as Lesslie Newbigin, John Perkins, Vinay Samuel, Dorothy Day, Desmond Tutu and Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Primary source readings as well as biographical materials, will be examined for each figure.
