Announcing: Theological Research Seminar

In cooperation with the undergraduate School of Theology and Ministry, Wesley Seminary at IWU will be hosting the Fall Theological Research Seminar on Monday afternoons from 3:30-5:00pm. We will meet in CM122 in the Noggle Christian Ministries building. Visitors are welcome.

The purpose of the seminar this year is to promote scholarship among faculty of the seminary and university in the areas of biblical studies, theological studies, and Christian historical studies. We will see if it grows into a catalyst for masters degrees in some or all of these areas.

20 – Steve Lennox, “Disability in Ancient Egypt”
27 – Chris Bounds, “Grace in the Apostolic Fathers”
