A WEEK WITH... JAROSLAV PELIKAN day 1


It's been a long while since I have offered out a "Week With..." series. And one voice that I've come across over the last few weeks is Jaroslav Pelikan. Thank you Dr. Spaulding for assigning, as usual, challenging but wonderful thinkers for your students to wrestle with.

Pelikan, aka "THE DOCTRINE DOCTOR" is the Sterling Professor Emeritus of History at Yale University where he served on the faculty from 1962-96. He is the immediate past president of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He is one of the world’s leading scholars in the history of Christianity and has authored more than 30 books including the five volume The Christian Tradition: A History of the Development of Doctrine (1971-89). He has written more books on Christian history than I have had lame ideas and he is one of the most respected Christian historians of our age.

So I hope you enjoy this week's WEEK WITH JAROSLAV PELIKAN!!!
