ABOUT THE CLASS:

Dopamine Hits, Tweets, and Rage: Hermeneutics for Peacemakers

This session will present two dimensions that comprise a hermeneutic of peacemaking for a divided age. We will look at scriptural resources that enable disciples to be read by the biblical text. This receptive reading approach then informs a socio-political biblical hermeneutic that brings into bold relief three central commitments of peacemaking that require rigorous embodiment in our polarized age.
