2016-2017 Courses


New Courses, New Faces for Fall 2016 and Winter 2017

We wanted to draw your attention to some great new courses and instructors for this next Fall and Winter terms.

Ross Lockhart, Pastoral Care (APPL 546), in the Fall

The course Pastoral Care and Ethics has now been divided into two courses, and Ross Lockhart will be teaching the Fall course on Pastoral Care. We are very happy to have Ross join us and look forward to him sharing some of his time with the Regent community. Ross is Associate Professor and Director of the Centre for Missional Leadership at St. Andrew’s Hall, and is the Director of Presbyterian Formation at VST. Previously he served as lead minister at West Vancouver United Church and at St. Matthew’s Church in Belleville, Ontario. Check out some of his writings:

  • Lessons from Laodicea: Missional Leadership in a Culture of Affluence (2016)
  • Gen X, Y Faith? Getting Real with God (2003)

Abraham Han, Supervised Ministry (APPL 693, APPL 694), in the Fall & Winter

A graduate of Regent College (MDiv), and currently engaged in a DMin program through Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Abraham is the Executive Minister at First Baptist Church in Vancouver, and has previously served there as Minister of Urban and Community Life. He has also served as Pastor at the Korean Central Presbyterian Church in Vienna/Centreville, Virginia, at Grace Community Church in Surrey, BC, and at the Rainbow Mission/All-Tribes Mission on the Downtown Eastside in Vancouver. With his wealth of experience, we are happy to have him coordinating the Supervised Ministry courses this year.

Amanda Russell-Jones, Josephine Butler & Equal Rights in the Victorian World (HIST 715), in the Fall

Amanda has been around Regent as long as her husband, Iwan, has, but this is the first time that she will offer a course based on her doctoral research on Josephine Butler. Butler was a 19th century social reformer and feminist, advocating for the education of women and for the welfare of prostitutes. Amanda’s research has also demonstrated Butler’s importance for biblical interpretation. This promises to be a stimulating and challenging seminar.

Drew Lewis, Greek & Hebrew, in the Fall & Winter

Drew is no stranger to Regent, having studied here back in the early 2000s and having taught Introductory Hebrew in several Summer Schools. Now we are happy to say that he will be expanding his teaching into Introductory Greek and Intermediate Hebrew. Drew earned his doctorate in Old Testament from the University of St. Andrew’s. You may want to check out his recent book:

  • Read Him Again and Again: Repetitions of Job in Kierkegaard, Vischer, and Barth (2014)

Janet Danielson, Music in Ministry: An Historical Overview (HIST 504/INDS 504), in the Winter

Janet is a composer and a Lecturer at Simon Fraser University, and has been a regular contributor to a number of courses at Regent (e.g., Christian Imagination). See her Canadian Music Centre page for more details on her biography. We are delighted to have Janet join us for the Winter term. Regardless of whether you are a proficient musician or an off-key singer of hymns, if you have an interest in Christian music you will enjoy this course.

Jens Zimmerman, Bonhoeffer’s Christian Humanism (INDS 518/THEO 518) & Transformations of Selfhood: Explorations in European Literature (INDS 566), both in the Winter

We are very excited to have Jens Zimmerman join us this Winter and again in 2018 and 2019. A professor at Trinity Western University since 1998, Jens has held the prestigious Canada Research Council Chair in Interpretation, Religion and Culture since 2006, and has been teaching in the areas of literature and philosophy. His two courses on Christian Humanism and on European Literature are great additions to our course offerings this year. You may wish to check out some of his recent publications:

  • Hermeneutics: A Very Short Introduction (2015)
  • Humanism and Religion: A Call for the Renewal of Western Culture (2012)
  • Incarnational Humanism: A Philosophy of Culture for the Church in the World (2012)

Fall Courses with Prerequisites, Co-requisites, or Recommended Prior Courses

The following courses have prerequites (Pre), co-requisites (Co), or prior recommended courses (Rec). If you lack one of the prerequisites, you will not be able to register for the course in question; if a course is listed as a co-requisite, you must take it prior to or at the same time as the course in question; if you lack a recommended prior course, you will be able to register for the course in question, but you should expect to do additional work.

NOTE: For Biblical Exegesis (BIBL 503), it is beneficial to have at least some knowledge of both Hebrew and Greek. Perspectives on Biblical Languages (LANG 500) will suffice. If, instead, you have taken either Introductory Hebrew or Introductory Greek, you may either audit the relavent half of LANG 500 in the Fall term ($100), or you may study the rudiments of a language on your own by downloading basic study notes from the Academic Advising page.
