sought to understand and live the Christian

mission

Christian community to articulate that Gospel revealed in the written

text of Scripture

Page 18: Steve McKinion - My Mantra as a Professor

Listen to Lectures and Readings

Page 19: Steve McKinion - My Mantra as a Professor

www.stevemckinion.com

Reflect on what you hear and read; THINK about

it

Page 20: Steve McKinion - My Mantra as a Professor

Inquire of me, other students, yourself

Page 21: Steve McKinion - My Mantra as a Professor

The right questions are sometimes more important

than the right answers

Page 22: Steve McKinion - My Mantra as a Professor

www.stevemckinion.com

Offer answers to those questions

Page 23: Steve McKinion - My Mantra as a Professor

www.stevemckinion.com

Test those answers in dialogue with Scripture, the class, your spouse

Page 24: Steve McKinion - My Mantra as a Professor

Be humbled when you find out your answers

are incomplete (or inaccurate)

You won’t like the class if you have all the

answers.
