About Dr. Murphy

I try to point students to the story behind the story, to the complex, multi-layered dynamics of human interaction in community. I want them to see the figures of history as real people wrestling with issues of life and love, identity, security, and destiny, within the heritage of the Judeo-Christian tradition--just as they will encounter in the ministry situations in which they will serve. It pleases me much when student papers show a critical engagement between their faith and the textual and thematic materials that we study.
