Justice & Mercy Online

If you’ve always wanted to take a seminary course, but have been procrastinating, you just ran out of excuses! (You know who you are.) Here’s your chance to take the plunge.

Biblical Seminary is offering an online course on Justice and Mercy.

I’m personally excited about this course for a lot of reasons, but here are two: 

First, the subject matter. If you’re like me, you have a burning in your bones when it comes to God’s call to Justice and Mercy. That burning must lead to action. But what to do? Where to start? How to help others without hurting? How to do more and do it better? 
This online course puts answers to those questions and more at your fingertips.
Second, the professor.  It will be a long time before you come across a professor who is better prepared to speak about justice and mercy from a multicultural perspective than Dr. Kyuboem Lee. Dr. Lee is multicultural and an expert on justice issues.
Check out his passport if you need hard evidence!
Kyuboem Lee was born in Seoul, South Korea, where he lived for the first 10 years of his life. He spent the next 8 years in Nairobi, Kenya as a Missionary Kid. Then it was on to America’s evangelical heartland where he graduated from Wheaton College. During doctoral studies at Westminster Theological Seminary, Dr. Lee was introduced to the field of Urban Mission by the late, great Dr. Harvey Conn—one of the pioneers in Urban Mission. That led him to spend 7 years on the pastoral staff of an African-American church and 10 years planting an incarnational inner city church in Philadelphia
Besides his teaching responsibilities (specializing in Urban Mission courses) at Biblical Seminary,  Esperanza College of Eastern University, and Westminster, Dr. Lee is general editor for the Journal of Urban Mission (which you may want to check out too). 
Trust me, a resume as widely and richly diverse as this is one in a million.  Here’s what Frank had to say about his colleague at Biblical Seminary:
“Kyuboem Lee is one of the most thoughtful and engaging young scholars I have met. He understand multiculturalism because he is multicultural. This is an amazing opportunity for students to have their eyes-opened to a global perspective on vital issues so close to the heart of God as Justice and Mercy.”
—President Frank A. James, Biblical Seminary

    This is indeed a great opportunity. On this pressing topic it is so easy to be too theoretical or too nuts and bolts. Kyuboem has the knowledge and experience to keep it all together! Thanks for letting us all know, Carolyn!
