Very cool. So glad part of @swamidass’s involvement featured prominently, though he was involved in other aspects than just the (significant!) advisement of Concordia Seminary. In fact, the project was much broader and nuanced than suggested in the article, which only addresses Phase I, the pilot program. Forum members should note that this effort has now moved into Pase II, and is stepping into year two of five. News about the project, including how new Seminaries can be involved, the Phase I final report, and video and curricular resources can be found at the project website:
If you’re connected to a seminary in any way, please make them aware of this opportunity.
Also, to clarify my own involvement to this project, I participated in the panel which lead to Phase I, was the Senior Program Associate for Phase I, and am a part of the Advisory for Phase II. AND, while I am glad to have been part, this is a project that was conceived many years before my involvement, and one that involves many, many, people both within AAAS and without. It could not have happened without the work and dedication of a great number of some of the finest people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing.
