Alumna Facilitates Discussion Between Prominent Theologians

Greenville University alumna Maureen Knudsen Langdoc ’02 recently facilitated a conversation between leading theologians Samuel Wells and Stanley Hauerwas to launch a new book titled In Conversation: Samuel Wells and Stanley Hauerwas (Church Publishing, 2020). 

The book captures a series of conversations between the theologians as they address Christian life in the twenty-first century. Langdoc facilitated these conversations as well. Scheduled forIn-Conversation.jpg release next month, it is the third title in the In Conversation series.

“The hope of the book was that readers get to peek around the corner and listen in as two theologians who happen to be friends chat about their work, family, and perhaps even baseball,” said Langdoc.    

The conversation reveals their thoughts on the Trinity, parish ministry, non-violence, and “intimate notions” on marriage and family. 

The publisher’s website says the book will help folks who follow Wells’s and Hauerwas’s theological and homiletical works discover the theologians’ inspirations. It calls the book a “fascinating read for Episcopalians and Anglicans, and those who enjoyed the first two In Conversation books.”

Maureen Knudson Langdoc, a scholar and pastor, serves as university chaplain and associate dean at DePauw University. She holds a masters of divinity from Duke University and a doctorate in theology and religious studies from King’s College London. She majored in English and religion/philosophy at Greenville University
