Diversifying the Pastor's Study



Barth, Bonhoeffer, Brueggemann, Calvin, Craddock, Luther, Moltmann, Tillich and Wesley. These are the names that line many pastors’ studies. They are the standards or “classics” of seminaries and theological education and preparation. Generations of preachers can be taught without ever mentioning the name of a Black preacher or a theologian of color.

Culture coach Nikki Lerner asked a recent webinar audience, How do you give voice to a diversity of leadership through your preaching and teaching resources? This is not a definitive list but is the result of Missouri pastors offering titles from their experiences. If you would like to add a resource, please use the button below.
