Rev. Dr. Deborah Krause to be retreat leader.
The Rev. Dr. Deborah Krause will provide the program for the Faculty Retreat, to be held July 31 through August 3, 2009 at Mercy Center in St. Louis.
A graduate of Amherst College, Eden Seminary, and Emory University, Dean Krause currently serves as Academic Dean and Professor of New Testament at Eden Theological Seminary in St. Louis. Her areas of expertise include biblical hermaneutics, the gospels, early Jewish exegesis, the Deutero-Pauline and pastoral epistles, and feminist-womanist, post-colonial and postmodern biblical interpretation. What does this mean?
Dean Krause encourages her students to engage scripture critically to gain understanding of what the Bible has meant in the history of the church, and to gain insight into what it means and how is can be used in ministry settings today.
Dr. Krause states, "My goal is for students to examine their assumptions, and to develop a sense of how their view of scripture coheres with their view of God, the Church, and the mission of the Church in the world. I also want them to be able to interpret others' assumptions and views in order to help navigate their contexts of ministry."
In other words, Dr. Krause invites those with whom she works to engage Scripture in order to name and proclaim God in the world and through their work as leaders in the Church today. She does so in a way that is engaging, inviting, and encouraging of all perspectives.
Deborah Krause is an ordained minister of the Presbyterian Church (USA), and serves the church through social justice advocacy work, teaching, preaching, and scholarship. She is the spouse of Rev. Bill Perman, also a PCUSA clergyperson, and the mother of two school-aged girls.
