Paul Jersild, Professor Emeritus of Theology and Ethics and former Dean at LTSS, recently published a book titled Christian Faith In Our Time – Rethinking the Church's Theology. In his book, Jersild responds to the fundamental issue in the theology of the church: what is the nature of our language in addressing the mysteries of our faith? He makes his case for a "faith-based imagination" centering on life, death, and resurrection of Jesus as God's man who brings a divine, redemptive love to the human story. Prior to his tenure at LTSS, Jersild served as a Visiting Research Professor at the University of South Carolina Bioethics Center. Among his published works are Spirit Ethics: Scripture and the Moral Life (2000) and The Nature of Our Humanity: Ethical Issues in Genetics and Biotechnology (2010).
