FROM THE DEAN

Dear Alumni and Friends of Yale Divinity school,

s we look back on the last year at Yale Divinity school, we have much to be thankful for. superb new colleagues have joined the faculty. Our applications for admission reached a new record, and the applicant pool looks strong again this year. Our new students have proven to be as lively, intellectually curious, and committed as we expected them to be. We experiencedawonderfulcelebrationofeightDecadesofWomen at YDs during convocation and reunions in October. Donors to Yale Divinity school and to Berkeley Divinity school have made significant contributions to achieving the goals of our capital campaign. You will read about some of these accomplishments in the pages of this years spectrum. As we celebrate the blessings of the past year, we also are conscious of the challenges ahead, both in the short and long terms. In the immediate future, the challenges are mainly financial. the weak economic recovery has meant that the university will have at least one more year of belt-tightening. the implication for YDs is that it will take special effort to maintain the level of financial aid that we have been able to reach in recent years, but to do so remains a top priority. I am hopeful that with the generous support of all our friends and benefactors we shall be able to do so. We can anticipate larger challenges for the longer term, as the shape of church life in the united states and around the world changes.Onanincreasinglyinterconnectedplanetthatfacesecological as well as political and social upheaval, it will be vitally important that religious communities collaborate to confront common challenges. equipping our students to play leading roles in that process will be essential to the mission of YDs. to prepare ourselves for that future, the faculty, students, and staff of YDs and BDs are currently engaged in a long-range planning process, which is required by the Association of theological schools as part of its reaccreditation requirements. under the leadership of Associate Dean of Academic Affairs emilie townes, colleagues here have taken the process very seriously. Organized in six task forces, they are evaluating all aspects of our life, from curriculum, to student recruitment, faculty development, and the support structures that make the Quad such a unique place. In the year ahead we shall also involve alumni in this process of assessment and planning. We look forward to receiving your advice on the array of important issues that we face as we shape the direction of this beloved institution for the years leading up to 2025.

We can already anticipate some of the issues that will be on the table: the need to replace the residential component of the Divinity school, the need for more seriousengagementwith other faith traditions, the need to deepen and broaden the professionaleducationof thenextgenerationof religious leaders. stay tuned for the results of this important planning effort. You may have been pleasantly surprised to find this issue of spectrum in your mailbox, as we had previously announced that spectrum would be going to an all online publication as a costsaving measure. Happily, we found ways to enable us to print the magazine again in 2011, in a less expense format. During the coming year we will revisit the question of maintaining a print publication in light of these challenging economic times. Finally, let me offer a word of heartfelt thanks to all of you who have been so supportive of the work of YDs in the past year. Your prayers, your letters of supportand occasionally of admonitionand your financial support, have been enormously encouraging to me and to the staff of YDs. Our current capital campaign, aiming to raise $38 million to secure the future of theological education at Yale, will conclude this June, and I am optimistic that with your support we can raise the remaining $4 million. thanks again, and may God bless you abundantly in the New Year.

THE yEAR 2010:


By Gustav Spohn 73 M.A.R. Director of Communications and Publications

A wiTNEss TO TRANsFORMATiON AT yDs A witness to trAnsformAtion At YDs

hances are, just about all alumni are aware of the multimillion dollar renovations to sterling Divinity Quadrangle that have rejuvenated the unused back buildings of the Quad and brought many other improvements to Yale Divinity school. Alongside the changes to brick and mortar, however, other, more gradual transformations have taken shape at Yale Divinity school over the past two decadeschanges that, it might be argued, are far more significant than the renovations. the changing interior contours of YDs are marked by: a much stronger presence of women and African Americans on the regular faculty as a new generation of scholars emerges; a more consciously ecumenical orientation, particularly with respect to the roman catholic community; and a greatly expanded reach into the real world beyond the Quad.

women is not one merely of statistics but about accomplishments and impact as well: margaret Farley 73 ph.D., the first full-time female faculty member and winner of the Grawemeyer Award in religion; Joan Forsberg 53 B.D., YDss first female dean of students and the first woman to have her portrait hung in the common room alongside a gallery of iconic YDs males; serene Jones 85 m.Div., 91 ph.D., the first female president of union theological seminary in New York; and current Associate Dean of Academic Affairs emilie townes, the first woman to serve as the schools top academic administrator. Organizing the celebration were the women of the Alumni Board, with mary ellen ODriscoll 02 m.Div. as Board president and talitha Arnold 80 m.Div. as Womens reunion chair. Other Board women included Joan cooper Burnett 04 m.Div., cheryl cornish 83 m.Div., Anne Hallisey 75 m.Div., carol rose Ikeler 50 B.D., myra mcNeill 08 m.Div., Jennie Ott 06 m.Div., and Allie

the faculty is more diverse and covers a broadertheologicaland historical range than it did a decade ago.

A quick glance at the list of regular faculty in the Academic Dean Emilie Townes 1989-91 Yale Divinity school Bulletin reveals the names of just five women from a list of 29.

Beyond the sheer numbers, it is noteworthy that each of those seven holds a senior faculty position, and five of the seven occupy endowed chairs. moreover, the schools top administrator, Dean Attridge, is a roman catholic.

said Attridge, Having a faculty that represents the broad spectrum of christian churches as well as other faith traditions will enable us to prepare the religious leaders of the next generation to understand the complex religious landscape that will confront us in the years ahead. In July 2010YDs took another step that strengthens its ecumenical bona fides in announcing its first endowed scholarship fund aimed at catholic students. Among the most compelling facets of ecumenical life at YDs are the worship services that bring dozens of students to marquand chapel every weekday morning. At the end of 2009-10, Assistant Dean for chapel siobhn Garrigan stepped down, but her legacy continues in the chapel worship guidelines she wrote, which urge, We need to be open, patient and generous as we strive to: find ways of worshipping amid difference and across the boundaries of division; share the best of our own traditions; learn about and participate as guests in other peoples traditions.

One of the many ways I describe YDs to folks is that we are a changing same.

YDss outreach has flourished over the past decade on a number of other fronts, including the outpouring of public gatherings on themes that affect ordinary people; the growing popularity of Reflections, YDss magazine of theological and ethical inquiry; and the expansion of the schools student exchange programs. In september 2010, the Divinity school brought together representatives of the faith community, academia, and NGOs to address pressing issues of global poverty at the church center for the u.N. in the shadow of the summit on the uNs millennium Development Goals. several months earlier, in may, YDs hosted the conference "money and morals after the crash" that gathered theologians, economists, and pastors to talk about the intersection of faith, ethics, and the economy.In April, hope and despair were recurrent themes when activists in the climate changeandenvironmentaljustice communities came together for the environmental (Dis)Locations conference hosted by YDs. Reflections magazine, dormant for much of the 1990s, is enjoying a resurgent popularity, and in many cases the topics it addresses have been twinned with Florence Teo and Pei yi Tew YDs-sponsored events. Both the u.N. church center gathering and the money and morals conference, for example, grew out of Reflections. In addition to the YDs alums who receive the twice-yearly publication, there are over 5,000 other regular subscribers, many associated with non-profit advocacy organizations or NGOs. In 2010 Reflections won the top award from the council for Advancement and support of education (cAse) in the categoryperiodical special issuesfor its issue on nuclear armaments. YDs initiated a student exchange program in Asia in 2009-10 to complement previously existing programs in europe. During the year, the campus welcomed the first two exchange students under its program with trinity theological college in singapore, Florence teo and pei Yi tew.

One of the many ways I describe YDs to folks is that we are a


changing same, observed townes. this folk phrase . . . describes the ways in which the things we believe stay the same are always changing, always growing. And if we remain true to our desire to combine faith and intellect, head and heart, we will always be stretching in new directions in theological education because the world around is changing, our students are changing, and we as faculty and staff are changing as well. Alumni Board chair Jerry Henry 80 m.Div. said, the strength of YDs, I believe, is its ability to keep its finger on the pulse of culture and society in order to remain relevant through whatever changes occur.

But in 2010 YDs made a major commitment to interdisciplinary cohesion by establishing, in partnership with Berkeley Divinity school at Yale and the school of Forestry and environmental studies, a joint endowed professorship in religion and environmental stewardship, believed to be the first such professorship in the country, funded through a $3 million gift from the porter Foundation.

Attridge.though this will remain a continuing need for years to come, as a result of gifts already received scholarship aid for students as a percentage of tuition revenue has increased from 57% to 82%. the final months of the campaign will focus on five special areas of need that will benefit students. sincethecampaignbegan,wehaveaddedthreeendowedfaculty chairs and three dozen named endowed scholarships, including two new scholarships announced at convocation: the eight Decades of Women scholarship Fund and the class of 1985 25th reunion scholarship Fund. Divinity tomorrow is a coordinated campaign of YDs along with its episcopal church affiliate, Berkeley Divinity school. It is part of Yale tomorrow with all gifts to the Divinity school counted toward the university-wide capital campaign. the five foci described below represent areas of growth and priorities for expanding educational capacities. Our hope is to build a firm foundation for each through initial gifts in the final months of the capital campaign. they will continue to be a focus in the years ahead, alongside YDss longstanding commitment to student financial aid.

global programs including student exchange programs with partner theological schools; a commitment to enhance global learning opportunities; and a renewed program seeking to bring promising young leaders from churches around the world to YDs. the Global education and partnership initiative will provide financial support for the new spectrum of global opportunity programs including seminars, exchanges and internships.

romAn cAtholic stuDent scholArships

Not until recently did a fund exist to assist roman catholic students, who demonstrate the same level of need as the overall student body. By establishing more funds like the new Henri Nouwen scholarship fund, YDs can ensure that gifted students of all religious traditions, including roman catholic, can pursue rigorous theological inquiry at the Divinity school each year.

though a strong program of experiential learning exists through the schools supervised ministries program, most parishes and mission programs seeking to host student interns no longer have the financial resources to support them.

pArtners on the QuAD

erhaps the single greatest distinction of university-based theological education is the horizon upon which it happens.Whereas a freestanding seminary may focus primarily upon the institutional needs of its own denomination, a divinity school linked to a university can expand studentsexpertise and passions into any number of interdisciplinary forums. By extension, the churches those students ultimately serve are greatly enriched as well.

cational Leadership and ministry initiative, now fully approved as a certificate program, draws together elements from around the university in support of ministry with youth. Our emphasis on global engagement, represented by deepening relationships with such Anglican partners as st. Nicholas seminary, Ghana, plays off of Yales own global commitments. the city of New Haven, a partner with the university in many endeavors, has also increasingly become a laboratory for ministry, including our young adult residential service program, st. Hildas House, sponsored collaboratively with christ church. extending on this urban focus, our leadership colloquium this year also emphasized ministry in inner cities, in this case in partnership with the transformational Fellows program of trinity church, Wall street.

yDs By THE NuMBERs

s the following statistics indicate, YDs continues to be a vibrant intellectual community, composed of students from a wide variety of religious traditions. Graduates use their theological education in a diverse array of settings including pastoral ministry, social service, and education. the nancial

condition of the school remains healthy, due in large measure to the generosity of our alumni and friends of theological education. We continue to meet our goals as a self-support school within Yale.

FACulTy BOOKs

twentY-fiVe new books bY YDs fAcultY

By Micah Luce 07 M.A.R., 08 S.T.M. Manager, Student Book Supply

n my third year at Yale Divinity schools student Book supply, I find myself still amazed at the annual Faculty Book party, which we host in the spring. this representation of our facultys published work is a constant reminder of how widely experienced, diligent, and talented our professors are. the reviews listed here combine brief summaries of books released in 2009 and 2010, briefly annotated with some of the experiences we at the student Book supply have had with their popularity. ur best selling faculty book in 2010 is titus street professor of ecclesiastical History bruce gorDons Calvin. While the title says it all, this is anything but a simple biography of one of the most interesting and important individuals in church history. Highly praised by the New York timess peter steinfels, Gordonsbookenlightensthemodernreader to calvins understanding of himself, his mission, and his times. Calvin has Bruce gordon sold out but is soon to arrive in paperback format where we will surely place many more copies into the hands of happy customers. hArolD w. AttriDge, the reverend Henry L. slack Dean of Yale Divinity school & Lillianclaus professor of New testament, continued his hard work as a scholar by editing The Religion and Science Debate: Why Does it Continue? In this publication, scholars from fields including sociology, religion, science, and history share theircontemporaryanduniquewisdomtoprovide continuedreconciliationbetweenthesetwofields.

Also included are a helpful index listing hundreds of parallel scriptural and extra-biblical references, an extensive bibliography, and a handy guide to make the entire textaccessibleandunderstandable. A recent and highly anticipated addition to our store, clementmuehl professor of Homiletics leonorA tubbs tisDAles Prophetic Preaching: A Pastoral leonora Tubbs Tisdale Approach, is absolutely flying off the shelves. Beloved by her students, tisdale has given them, and young or veteran preachers everywhere, a book packed with practical and theological findings. this is certain to help the preacher understand and enact ways to present a prophetic sermon, especially within the pastoral context. One of the most popular books to grace our shelves in the past two years is A Common Word: Muslims and Christians on Loving God and Neighbor, coedited by miroslAV Volf, the Henry B. Wright professor of systematic theology. containing both an original letter published by muslim leaders and a christian responseknown as the Yale responsepublished in a 2007 issue of the New York times, this title expresses the deep desire to work toward unity between two major world religions often seen as irreconcilable. Also by volf is Against the Tide: Love in a Time of Petty Dreams and Persisting Enemies. In this beautiful collection of short and poignant essays, volf meditates on personal experience and deep thought, to reflect in our lives the love that God is. everything in this book is about how to make determined steps toward love. volfs third recent book is Captive to the Word of God: Engaging the Scriptures for Contemporary Theological Reflection. using texts like ecclesiastes, Johns Gospel, 1 peter, and 1

Miroslav Volf

A second title from Attridge is the scholarly Acts of Thomas. Including a completely new translation of the Greek text, Attridge initially provides the reader with a helpful introduction that explains the literary and historical setting of this major apocryphal work. printed creatively throughout, the book may be a pleasure to simply look at, but the text is anything but mere eye candy.

John, volf discusses contemporary issues such as pluralism, interreligious dialogue, christianitys relationship to culture, and materialism in the light of scriptures bearing on theological thought in everyday life. Holmes professor of Old testament criticism and Interpretation John J. collins continues his prolific work as a writer in BeJohn J. Collins yond the Qumran Community: The Sectarian Movement of the Dead Sea Scrolls. presenting new scholarship that reaches sometimes-surprising conclusions, this book constantly digs deeper while including images and explanations that help allow everyone to grasp the authors important findings. In addition to this original book, collins also edited the enormous Eerdmans Dictionary of Early Judaism, the first reference work ever on Judaism in the Greco-roman Age. thirteen major essays attempting to summarize second temple Judaism (including one from collins himself ) and 520 encyclopedic alphabetical entries with separate bibliographies and cross-references make up this impressive compilation from more than 250 international authors. Lastly from collins is his work as an editor on the Oxford Handbook of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Another massive volume, the book explores the debates and differing opinions from the history of secondtemple scholarship. Focusing on the main issues of this scholarship (such as the identity of the sect, archaeological factors, and the relationJoel Baden ship of the text to the second temple period at large), this book will undoubtedly help the reader understand the most crucial aspects of the scrolls. Assistant professor of the History of American christianity clArence e. hArDY iii wrote James Baldwins God: Sex, Hope, and Crisis in Black Holiness Culture. Hardy powerfully shows the ways in whichBaldwinwasbothconnected and disconnected from black religious culture. His own interpretation of Baldwin is written clearly and expressively in a scholarly voice that reflects thoughtful research and passion for the subject. even though individuals may not be able to attend classes at YDs, they can still get a glimpse of courses taught by exciting young scholars such as willis Jenkins,

the margaret Farley Assistant professor of social ethics. In his Bonhoeffer and King: Their Legacies and Import for Christian Social Thought, Jenkins presents many of the same ideas a YDs student might encounter in his class on these two giants of religious thought and action. By exploring some of the similarities between the two, Jenkins helps the modern reader understand and apply the passion, theology, and social work of Bonhoeffer and King.

Jenkins also edited The Berkshire Encyclopedia of Sustainability, volume 1: The Spirit of Sustainability. this volume of the complete guide to all things sustainable compiles the work of dozens of international scholars and explores the green views of religions from African indigenous to mainline christianity. this thorough undertaking is valuable for students of all ages. the first book by Assistant professor of Old testament Joel bADen is J, E, and the Redaction of the Pentateuch. While arguing for a single redaction of the pentateuch sources rather than a separate composition of a Je document, Baden also defends the fundamental claims of redaction criticism through careful scholarship and historical research. Associate professor of Hebrew scriptures cArolYn shArp has a seemingly endless supply of ink, and this year is no exception. Wrestling the Word: The Hebrew Scriptures and the Christian Believer provides an introductory yet necessarylookathowfaithandacademicscancooperate in the life of the christian. While students will find this book an invaluable resource, it will also speak to those who consider themselves lifelong learners. thomAs h. troeger, the J. edward and ruth cox Lantz professor of christian communication, continues his work as an artist in God, You Made All Things for Singing: Hymns, Texts, Anthems, and Poems for a New Millennium. A resource for ministers, musicians, and lay people alike, troegers compositions span the liturgical year while remaining highly organized by theme. troegers powerful language once again captures a sense of beauty and exciting rhythm that move the reader while teaching sound theology. Yet another troeger book is the immensely popular (sold out three times) Wonder Reborn: Creating Sermons on Hymns, Music, and Poetry. With an emphasis on the aesthetic of preaching and worship in congregations, troeger enlivens the readertounderstandhowbeautycanberediscoveredinaculture that, at times, commercializes and thus distorts its very meaning. He then helps the preacher and worship leader allow beauty to be reborn through personal and historical renewal.

Eccentric Existence: A Theological Anthropology is the magnum opus of DAViD kelseY, Luther A. Weigle professor of theology emeritus. In this elaborate, two-volume composition, Kelsey answers the question, What does it mean to be a human being?the response to this title has been overwhelmingly positive in spirit and sales, which is no surprise, as it represents decades of work by Kelsey. the bookismanageablethroughthreeclear David Kelsey sectionsdealingwithcreation,eschatology, and redemption. It is a must-have for any serious student of theology or those wanting to expand their own understanding of humanity in relationship to God. Another book that remained in high demand at the student Book supply was co-edited by former Associate professor of Liturgical studies siobhn gArrigAn. Common Worship in Theological Education is a beautiful discussion of the place that communal worship can play in educating seminarians. Given Garrigans extensive work as associate dean of chapel, it is difficult to imagine any person better equipped to understand and compile this discussion of the role of chapel in a seminary setting. peter hAwkins, professor of religion and literature, added to his numerous publications with From the Margins 1: Women of the Hebrew Bible and Their Afterlives, which he edited. this single volume creatively gives credence to some special female characters that move quickly in and out of the Hebrew Bible. In this book, new life is given to many women who are often overlooked, forgotten, and dismissed. A newcomer to the YDs scene but no rookie to scholarship, Assistant professor of American religious History tisA wenger has written We Have a Religion: the 1920s Pueblo Indian Dance Controversy and American Religious Freedom, which is used in several classes and is regularly plucked from our shelves by American religious history enthusiasts. exploring roughly 50 years of pueblo Indian religious practice, Wenger identifies religious, legal, and cultural aspects of the New mexico tribes struggles and triumphs. A jointly edited effort by professors of Liturgical studies teresA berger
siobhn garrigan

and brYAn spinks, The Spirit in Worship: Worship in the Spirit includes 15 different voices in exploring the crucial work of the Holy spirit in liturgics. catholic, eastern Orthodox, Anglican, and pentecostal voices are all represented among the authors whose practice and scholarship shine in this title. As brilliant as ever, Noah porter professor of philosophical theol- Teresa Berger ogy John e. hAre has given us God and Morality: A Philosophical History. Focused on the work of Aristotle, Duns scotus, Kant, and r.m. Hare, this book presents a history of philosophical ethics. While avoiding dogmatic rigidity, the volume provides a deep and clear contribution in impressively rich fashion. research scholar ADriAAn c. neele, associate editor and director of the Works of Jonathan edwards and Jonathan edwards center, has obviously been busy. But this has not kept him from writing a groundbreaking monograph with the release of Petrus van Mastricht (1630-1706), Reformed Orthodoxy: Method and Piety. thoroughly researched and well-organized, Neeles book paves the way for studying mastricht in his original context while highlighting his importance in the field of theological history. YDss new professor of pastoral care and counseling mArY clArk moschellA has edited Pastoral Bearings: Lived Religion and Pastoral Theolog y. this title presents 10 wellresearched studies from multiple global contexts (Asia, Africa, and North America included) and conAdriaan C. Neele tributors who portray the importance of lived religion in pastoral care settings. Among the emphases are the need for multidisciplinary dialogue and attention to global contexts and gender studies.
