Winter 2001
Volume 5 Number 2

PTS faculty members Dr. Deborah van Deusen Hunsinger and Dr. Robert C. Dykstra, both professors in the field of pastoral theology, were recently tenured and promoted to the rank of associate professor. 

As a way of introducing them to our readers, InSpire asked the two scholars to write about what they are working on in their research. Dr. Hunsinger (The Master Key: Unlocking the Relationship of Theology and Psychology) is intrigued by the categories that Barth offers to the discussion of the relationship between theology and psychology, about which she has written in her book Theology and Pastoral Counseling: A New Interdisciplinary Approach. 

Dr. Dykstra (To Be Boring or to Be Bored: That Is the Question) is writing a book about pastoral preaching, and how the role and psychodynamics of the pastor and the expectations of the congregation affect the task of preaching. His article here is from his book Discovering a Sermon, forthcoming from Chalice Press.
