Faculty Scholarship Update
School of Divinity course "Invoking Your Public Theological Voice" highlighted on FOX 8 WGHP for assignment where students were asked to write
letters to the supporters of the presidential candidate who represented the view other than their own; this aired on MLK Day
School of Divinity professors Katherine Shaner, assistant professor of new testament, and Bill Leonard, Dunn Professor of Baptist Studies and pro-
fessor of church history, have been invited to write for "American Values, Religious Voices: 100 Days. 100 Letters." Organized by a powerful grass-
roots initiative, this is a bipartisan campaign that features scholars from different religious tradition to articulate core American values that have
grounded our nation in the past and should guide us forward at this time of political transition. All 100 letters are sent to the President, Vice Presi-
dent, Cabinet Secretaries, and Members of the House and Senate. Visit http://
