Faculty's passion for academic excellence extends well beyond campus

Crown faculty members present papers across U.S.

Recently, Dr. Glenn Myers presented a paper at the International Congress on Medieval Studies/Institute for Cistercian and Monastic Studies in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Entitled ?Honoring the Stages of Spiritual Formation: William of St. Thierry?s Legacy in the Sermons of Johannes Tauler,? this paper traced the transmission of ideas between two important classic authors on spiritual formation.

Dr. Myers, Professor of Church History and Theological Studies at Crown College, has also been asked to contribute a chapter containing this research in a forthcoming scholarly volume on William of St. Thierry.

Dr. Myers received his BS in History from Carnegie-Mellon University, his MDiv from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and his PhD in Church History from Boston University. His recent book, Seeking Spiritual Intimacy, Journeying Deeper with Medieval Women of Faith is available on the InterVarsity website, or on Amazon.com. Follow Dr. Myer's blog at: deepwellswithglennmyers.blogspot.com

In addition, Crown's Library Director and Professor of Bible, Dr. Dennis Ingolfsland, took part in a panel discussion with two of the world?s leading historical Jesus scholars.

Dr. Ingolfsland was invited by the Synoptic Gospels Study Group of the Evangelical Theological Society to present a paper critiquing the book, Jesus Research; an international perspective, which was edited by Dr. James Charlesworth of Princeton Seminary. The presentation took place in San Francisco earlier in this academic year.

After Dr. Ingolfsland presented his paper, Dr. Craig Blomberg of Denver Seminary presented a paper critiquing another of Dr. Charlesworth?s books. Dr. Charlesworth then made a formal response to both papers. This was followed by a panel discussion between Drs. Charlesworth, Blomberg and Ingolfsland.
