Celebrating the release of Dr. Jennifer Awes Freeman‘s The Good Shepherd: Image, Meaning, and Power (Baylor University Press, 2021), United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities is proud to invite members of the community to a special book event. On Wednesday, March 2 at 9 AM CT, join us on campus or via livestream for a discussion and Q&A with Dr. Awes Freeman, assistant professor and director of theology and the arts, and special guest Dr. Robin Jensen from the University of Notre Dame. Dr. Demian Wheeler and student respondents Pat Browne and John Scheuer will also offer responses to the book. They will discuss the the figure of the Good Shepherd which never became humble or docile but always carried connotations of empire, divinity, and defensive violence even within varied sociopolitical contexts. Join us for an exciting discussion of this important historical scholarship.
