I will be offering the course DM802 Biblical Interpretation for Church and World for the Doctor of Ministry program on the Orlando campus of Asbury Theological Seminary.
This course is part of the required core for the D.Min. degree, but more importantly it is my signature course for teaching biblical interpretation through the perspective of a missional hermeneutic of Scripture. The class focuses on reflecting critically on our reading practices and helping to shape interpreters into persons who read the Scriptures not merely for the Church but for our pre and post Christian culture.
If you are interested in the Doctor of Ministry in Innovative Transformation or in taking my course, contact the D.Min. office.
