The registration deadline for Summer Study 2013 is May 26th!

This summer Yale Divinity School presents an exciting program of courses taught by YDS faculty. Topics are diverse and include everything from the Dead Sea Scrolls to Jonathan Edwards to postmodern worship. The courses are divided into two weeklong sessions: June 10-14th and June 17-21th.

Week One will focus on Bible study and interpretation, featuring David Bartlett and Robert Wilson's course "Preaching from the Lectionary: Year A," which will offer fresh perspectives on familiar and difficult scriptures. Maggi Dawn will examine theology through the arts with "Reading Theology through Art, Poetry and Music." John and Adela Collins will both be teaching fantastic bible courses. John will offer “What have we learned from the Dead Sea Scrolls?” and Adela will offer “The Gospel of Mark: The Oldest Story of Jesus.” Sign up for both!

Week Two will focus on tools for ministry. Highlights include Jerry Streets’s course, "Creating Social Change: The Power of ‘I Have a Dream,’ " which will examine the use of dreams in prophetic ministry. Jan Holton’s course, "Ministry in Times of Mass Violence and Tragedy," will explore tools for dealing with issues surrounding mass casualty events. And, back by popular demand, Julie Faith Parker will offer "The Bible through Art and Artifact II" featuring excursions to museums and cultural institutions around Yale and New Haven.

Complementing Week Two is a very special Youth Ministry program featuring five great speakers: Chap Clark, Miroslav Volf, Rodger Nishioka, Yolanda Smith, and David White.
