My Required Reading at Trinity School for Ministry (Fall 2017)


Here are the required “texts” I’ll be working through this fall. I plan to post my discussion thoughts and other reflections as posts here as well. The classes are taught online through the Google Classroom system. The first book is from Introduction to Systematic Theology with Eugene Schlesinger, Ph.D. and the remaining are from Introduction to Global Mission with The Rt. Rev. Frank Lyons, D.Min.
