A 1999 graduate of PTS’s Ph.D. program Carolyn
Schneider is proud to announce her new book, “I Am a Christian:” The Nun, the Devil, and Martin Luther. The book, which was published by
Fortress Press in 2010, tells Luther’s story of a woman who fought the devil by
saying, “I am a Christian.” The
book explores why Luther found this to be such a
faithful response and also demonstrates how this tale is relevant to today’s
people who are tempted by despair. Schneider is associate professor of theology at Texas
