TCH 500 Abraham Heschel: Prophetic Witness in the Twentieth Century
Faculty: Dr. Jennifer Little (Profile)
ABOUT THE COURSE
This course explores applications of ethical prophecy for ministry in the 20th Century. Our work here explores Heschel’s classic text The Prophets. Students will also reflect on the role and practice of prophetic ethical witness in their ministry settings with particular attention to preaching and theology. Heschel’s work, although published in two volumes, is extremely engaging and readable. Students will likely find something in either of the week’s readings that sparks their soul and inspires their writing.
