James Bruckner

Kl 13.00-14.30
James Bruckner, Professor of Old Testament, North Park Seminary, Chicago
"Love ... with all your might?": Strength in the Old Testament

Having been raised in Eskimo villages on the northwest coast of Alaska, intercultural learning is in Dr. James Bruckner’s blood. Today, it affects every course he teaches. “Intercultural learning happens by entering the seminary,” he says. “The interpretation of Scripture begins with the study of the wide variety of cultural and ethnic settings of the biblical text. It continues with Field Education throughout the city, intercultural settings, and worldwide Christian studies.” An essential part of Dr. Bruckner’s identity as a faculty member is to form students who will become his peers in ministry. “From the beginning of the seminary experience to beyond graduation, we continuously interact with students,” he says. “Training pastors in the value of reading the Bible as God’s word is the most challenging and rewarding work that I know.”
An ordained pastor of the Evangelical Covenant Church, Dr. Bruckner has served
congregations in Washington and Minnesota, and as a lay missionary in Alaska.
