Journal of the Union Faculty Forum

Volume 33, Fall 2013


Welcome by
Faculty Forum President

It is the glory of God to conceal things,
but the glory of kings is to search things out.

Proverbs 25:2

Welcome to Union University's Journal of the Union Faculty Forum (JUFF). As Forum President, I am pleased to invite you to engage with Union University scholars in "the glory of kings"-in searching out the mystery and beauty of creation and of the human experience. Many thanks to the faculty members for their work, leading us in this royal endeavor.

The purpose of the Union Faculty Forum is to advance the university's mission of Christ-centered higher education through JUFF and through the Forum's role in faculty governance. I invite Union faculty members to participate in both. May our intellectual worship advance Christ's kingdom as we walk in justice and mercy.
