This year we feature Dr. Deanna Thompson, Professor of Religion, at Hamline University. Deanna’s scholarly work focuses on Martin Luther, Feminist Theology, and the Cross. She has also addressed theologically the personal journey of living with cancer. This set of presentations are based on her book The Virtual Body of Christ in a Suffering World, (Abingdon, 2016), in which she explores theologically how the virtual world provided support to her and to others as they experience suffering.
