Harrison Daniel, associate professor in the practice of history and mission at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology, will explore how biblical texts inform our understanding of mission and how mission informs our reading of the Bible, Nov. 12, 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Candler in Room 102.

His research focuses on the history and globalization of the Methodist movement, particularly in German-speaking Europe, Eastern Europe, and West Africa.
