Professor: Nicolas Miller
Date: March 23-27, 2014
Location: Northern Pacific Union Conference Office, Ridgefield, Washington. (Class will meet in the Mt Hood room also known as the downstairs boardroom).
This seminar will explore the reformation foundations, post-reformation historical development, and the American legal context of religious liberty and church/state relations. It will do so in the context of Adventist theological concerns, especially the priesthood of believers and the sanctuary doctrine. The course will involve book reviews/critiques, a final written exam, and a post-intensive practical component where students will draft letters, petitions or other advocacy documents for actual submission to newspapers, web pages, or public officials in relation to current issues of church and state.
