Seabury Seminary Faculty Find New Positions

As many of my readers know, Seabury Episcopal Seminary has closed its M.Div. program, leaving most of its faculty needing to move on. The Seabury Website is positing the following bits of good news about Dr. AKMA Adam (New Testament) and Dr. Frank Yamada (Old Testament):

AKMA Adam has accepted an appointment as Visiting Professor of New Testament at Duke Divinity School. He joined the Seabury faculty in 1999 after several years teaching New Testament at Princeton Theological Seminary. The author of numerous books and articles, Adam spent the academic year 2007-2008 as a resident Member of the Center of Theological Inquiry in Princeton, New Jersey.

Frank Yamada will remain nearby in his new position as Director of the Center for Asian American Ministry and Associate Professor of Hebrew Bible at McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago. Since joining the Seabury faculty in 1999, he has been an active speaker and lecturer in both church and academy. He is author of a number of articles and commentary selections and recently published his first book, Configurations of Rape in the Hebrew Bible.
