Forming Christian leaders committed to God’s ministry of reconciliation
Reconciliation is at the heart of the gospel message: “In Christ, God was reconciling the world to himself… and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us” (2 Corinthians 5:19). And because reconciliation is at the heart of the gospel, it is also at the heart of the Divinity School’s mission.
—Dean Richard Hays, DIVINITY Magazine, Spring 2012
