HDS Voices

Mark Jordan, Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Christian Thought at HDS

I want my students to come roaring out of the course wanting to write. It's less important to me that they conform to a particular view of queer theology than they become passionately critical about writing. ...I'm always hoping someone in this class will write the masterpiece.
Mark D. Jordan, Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Christian Thought
