Some of her current courses are Introduction to New Testament Greek, Greek Exegesis of 2 Corinthians, and Introduction to New Testament Exegesis.
“One of the biggest lessons I learned was how to be charitable to views other than my own. Christian charity was shown to me, not just in the readings for class, but from the professors, and the Seminary community.”
