Steve Schweitzer, Leader
Steve Schweitzer writes,
“Science Fiction is extremely popular in our wider culture. This genre is filled with theological themes: who is God, what does it mean to be human, what is the nature of evil, how is it overcome, is war or violence necessary, to name only a few. Based on a course I teach at Bethany, we will explore some examples from widely popular SciFi series—Star Wars, Star Trek, and Doctor Who—that allow connections between theology and culture.”
Steve Schweitzer (PhD, Notre Dame) is Academic Dean and Professor at Bethany Theological Seminary.
He regularly teaches a graduate seminar on Chronicles-Ezra-Nehemiah and a course on Science Fiction and Theology. Steve has preached, taught, and led workshops for several congregations and districts, including Bible studies and Insight Sessions at Annual Conference. Steve and his wife, Jill, have 3 children. They attend Cedar Grove Church of the Brethren in the Southern Ohio/Kentucky district.
