Bonhoeffer and the Black Church? The important insights that the German theologian uncovered through the black American narrative are at the heart of the scholarship that professor Dr. Reggie Williams offers his students. His expansive thinking around Christological ethics, theological anthropology, Christian social ethics, the Harlem Renaissance, race, politics and Black Church life make him a powerhouse in the classroom and an influential voice at organizations like the Society for Christian Ethics, the International Dietrich Bonhoeffer Society, and the American Academy of Religion and Society for the Study of Black Religion.

Bet you didn't realize that the book of Genesis is a collection of immigrant stories. Although we typically read them as the journeys of shepherds following their flocks, a closer inspection shows us how they left their homes, crossed borders, and relocated to neighboring countries. That's the undercurrent of a new book written by current McCormick students and edited by emeritus Old Testament Studies professor, Dr. Ted Hiebert. Journeys in Genesis: Unveiling Migration Stories in the Bible. Available now on Amazon.

Apuesto a que no te diste cuenta de que el libro de Génesis es una colección de historias de inmigrantes. Aunque normalmente las leemos como los viajes de los pastores siguiendo a sus rebaños, una inspección más cercana nos muestra cómo dejaron sus hogares, cruzaron fronteras y se trasladaron a países vecinos. Ésa es la corriente subyacente de un nuevo libro escrito por estudiantes actuales de McCormick y editado por el profesor emérito de Estudios del Antiguo Testamento, el Dr. Ted Hiebert. Journeys in Genesis: Unveiling Migration Stories in the Bible. Disponible ahora en Amazon.
