JohnsonRetiring Robert W. Woodruff Professor of New Testament and Christian Origins Luke Timothy Johnson will present Candler’s final Office Hours practical ministry webinar of the spring semester on Tuesday, April 5 at 12:00 p.m. “The Revelatory Body: Theology as Inductive Art,” will cover material from Johnson’s most recent book of the same title, published in 2015 (Eerdmans). Register for the webinar.

Johnson asserts that discerning manifestations of God’s spirit through the body is a key part of the theological process. “I’m convinced that the living God continues to press upon us in all the circumstances of our life, and that the human body is God’s preferred medium of self-revelation,” he says.

A member of the Candler faculty since 1992, Johnson will retire at the end of this academic year.

Sponsored by Candler’s Office of Development and Alumni Relations, Office Hours: Practical Ministry Webinars are free, one-hour online conversations with Candler faculty members designed to provide new tools for use in your work and ministry. Without leaving their desks, participants view a live presentation, ask questions, and engage in dialogue with faculty members.
