Rita Brock and Anne Joh to lead Seminar on Christology
In September 2020, PANAAWTM theologians, Dr. Rita Nakashima Brock and Dr. Anne Joh,
were invited by the Westar Institute (home of the Jesus Seminar) to co-lead a Seminar on Christology. The Institute’s seminars are dedicated to 1) communicating cutting-edge scholarship on the history and evolution of the Christian tradition to the public and 2) raising the level of public discourse about questions that matter in society and culture. As members of the three-member steering committee, which also includes theologian Dr. Wilson Dickinson, they will be inviting global scholars of note to join the working group for the seminar, writing occasional blogs on Christology, and organizing projects that include a book anthology, in addition to other possibilities such as webinars, podcasts, new liturgical resources, and, even perhaps, media products.
