As we are headed into the High Holidays, a period of reflection about our place in the world, join us for an illuminating conversation between AJU’s Rabbi Cheryl Peretz and Dr. David Jensen of the Austin Presbyterian Seminary. Reflecting upon religion and theology, they will discuss sin, punishment, repentance and redemption in both religions, exploring sacred words, rituals and relationships with God.
Dr. David Jensen has been teaching at Austin Seminary since 2001. He was elected a full professor in 2009, appointed to the Frierson Chair in 2013, and appointed academic dean in 2014. Previously, he taught theology, church history, and ethics at Manchester College in Indiana. His teaching and research explore the interconnections between Christian theology and daily life.
Dr. Jensen’s books include Christian Understandings of Christ: The Historical Trajectory (Fortress, 2019), 1 and 2 Samuel (Westminster John Knox, 2015) and Always Being Reformed: Challenges and Prospects for the Future of Reformed Theology (editor, Pickwick Publications, 2016).
Rabbi Cheryl Peretz is the Associate Dean of the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies, where she also received her ordination. She also holds her MBA in Marketing Management from Baruch College, and helps bring those skills and expertise into the operational practices of rabbis and congregations throughout North America.
