Upcoming Th.M. Seminars

Please look at the proposed seminars for the next two years and let me know what you think. If you’d like to suggest a change, please do so in the comments. Or, if you’d like to discuss your own ThM plan in light of these seminars, let me know so we can set up a time to talk.

Fall 2010

  • THS Seminar – Issues in Contemporary Theology (specific topics to be determined)

Spring 2011

  • OTS Seminar – The History of Israel

Summer 2011

  • CHS Seminar – Jonathan Edwards and Puritan Theology
  • NTS Seminar – Apostolic Fathers

Fall 2011

  • NTS Seminar – Advanced Greek Syntax or Readings in the Septuagint

Spring 2012

  • CHS Seminar – Augustine

Summer 2012

  • OTS Seminar – Textual Criticism
  • THS Seminar – Philosophical Theology

I don’t know yet what electives we’ll be offering, but I will pass that information along as soon as I have it. You can assume that every year there will at least be:

  • An exegetical elective on an OT book taught by Jan.
  • An exegetical elective on a NT book taught by Jim.
  • A theology elective taught by either Gerry or Todd
  • Two English-language Bible electives taught by Carl
  • A theology elective taught by an visiting professor
  • A Bible elective taught by a visiting professor

  1. Ok – so this has changed a bit. Fall 2010 was “Phil in Theo,” Spring 2011 is “Ap Fathers,” and Summer 2011 is “Edwards.”

    Will there still be an “Issues in Contemporary Theology” seminar upcoming? “Augustine”? When for each or is there a possibility of doing something on 19-20th c. German Theology instead of Augustine?


    • Pat, my plan at the moment is to do a seminar on Augustine (Fall 2011) and the seminary on “Issues in Contemporary Theology” (Summer 2012). I’d be open to considering modern German theology instead of Augustine if student interest warranted. I usually do a quick survey in the spring to see where student interest is. We’ll see where that takes us.
