Teaching Fellow in Theology and Ethics

Expertise: Nineteenth-century Christianity; North American religious history; Christian Social Ethics

At North Park since: 2013

Dr. Jodie Boyer Hatlem came to North Park Theological Seminary as part of a two-year postdoctoral teaching fellowship from the Louisville Institute. She was struck by North Park’s “tremendously close-knit community,” she says. “The professors here celebrate, mourn, and pray with their students.”

Dr. Boyer Hatlem believes that students considering seminary will find classes at North Park “challenging, interesting, and concerned with engaging the church and the world,” she says. “Students should have a passion for the Bible and a desire to inhabit a biblical vision of justice for the sake of the world.”

Classes taught by Dr. Boyer Hatlem include Ethics, Theology, and Church History. She is a member of the American Academy of Religion, the American Society of Church History, the Canadian Society for the Study of Religion, and the Society for the Social History of Medicine.
