Women in History and Theology
November 06, 2016 - November 11, 2016

Dr. Mimi Haddad, president of CBE, will be teaching “Women in History and Theology” at the Zinzendorf School of Doctoral Studies, Olivet University Women in History and Theology, from Nov 7-12th,  2016. This course is an introduction to the leadership, theological contributions and experiences of women from the Old Testament period through the twentieth century. In each era, we will also consider the historical, theological and philosophical assumptions and events that supported, or more often, limited the fullest participation of women’s gifts and leadership in church and religious life. As church continues to consider the scope of service and leadership open to women in the church and marriage, this course will explore the significance gender has played in shaping theology, ministry and Christian life. Readings, class discussion, multi-media and assignments will enable students to critique the significance of gender in the life of the church today.

“Ideas have Consequences: Justice Begins with a Consistent Reading of Scripture"
September 14, 2016 - September 14, 2016

Join Dr. Mimi Haddad at the 2016 "Truth Be Told" international conference as she will be one of the plenary speakers to speak out against gender based violence and lecture on "Ideas Have Consequences: Justice Begins with a Consistent Reading of Scripture."

The teachings and practices of Christian faith have significant implications for girls and women globally. As Plato said, ideas rule the world. Ideas have consequences, and religious ideas even more so, since they are said to represent God. What has been the impact of Christian teachings? Have they nurtured women's flourishing? This lecture will answer these questions by considering the three views the church has historically held regarding women's value, purpose, and equality, each supported with a particular reading of Scripture that constitutes a unique worldview with enormous ethical implications.
