On Sunday, June 19, Dr. Robert Craig will preach on the text from Matthew, “Love your enemies” and will lead a 2nd hour discussion on this difficult saying from Jesus. Bob received a Masters of Divinity degree from Union Theological Seminary and followed a calling to teach. He received his Ph.D. from Columbia University. He spent five years in Latin America at a time when liberation theology was emerging. He co-authored Protestantism and Liberalism in Latin America in 1985 and a decade later, published Religion and Radical Politics. A pacifist at heart, a Calvinist by tradition and training, Craig has much to say about these radical words from Jesus. Most recently, Dr. Craig served as Chair of the Department of History, Politics and Culture at the College of St. Scholastica. After retiring, he taught in Slovakia and China.
