Workshop 2017

Listen in on the conversation at the second annual Theology for Teachers workshop at John Carroll University.

October 13, 2017


Be Transformed by the Renewal of Your Mind

Dr. Todd Walatka (University of Notre Dame) offers the 2017 Keynote, exploring the relationship between theology, catechesis, and evangelization in order to ask the question, "What are we trying to do in the classroom?"


Jesus and Justice

Dr. Sheila McGinn (John Carroll University)

Jesus of Nazareth was deeply shaped by Jewish prophets and practices--including the practice of the jubilee year. What does this tradition mean for how we care for the poor, the migrant, and all of creation?


Church in the World

Dr. Eric Dart (Gannon University)

More and more we teach church to the unchurched. How can we convey Vatican II's vision of the church as the sign and instrument of communion with God and unity of the human race?


Islam for Christians

Dr. Zeki Saritoprak (John Carroll University

Muslims honor Jesus as a great prophet and revere his mother Mary. How much do we really know about Islam? And how do we foster genuine understanding among our students?
