Professor Thorpe featured in Sojourners magazine

An article by Seattle Pacific University English professor Dr. Doug Thorpe appeared in last month's issue of Sojourners magazine. Dr. Thorpe's article, "Living Waters", reflects on his recent visit to Israel/Palestine with Earth Ministry, a local environmental stewardship organization.

In his article, Dr. Thorpe looks at the importance of water in the region, both as religious symbol and source of political conflict. Dr. Thorpe examines the Christian concept of a "living water" and the implications it has on the region's current situation.

You can read Dr. Thorpe's article here. For more information about Dr. Thorpe's work, see his faculty page on the SPU website.
