Kick Off Event for Challenging Elvis Series. Don Compier, Ph.D.
Don H. Compier will kick off the Elvis season with a lecture entitled, "Christianity and Rock N' Roll." The two topics may not seem to go together but Dr. Compier will demonstrate through music and image how important Rock N' Roll has been to Christianity. Dr. Compier became the founding Dean of the Community of Christ Seminary, Graceland University in 2002, with the goal of making it a leader in online education and global outreach. He is involved in efforts to establish a Kansas City consortium of seminaries, having served as honorary chair of the Kansas City Association of Theological Schools. Prior to becoming Dean of the Seminary, Compier was an Assistant Professor at Graduate Theological Union and lecturer at Emory University. Dr. Compier received his Ph. D. in Theological Studies from the Graduate School of Religion at Emory University. His publications include many articles and books including: Listening to Popular Music, John Calvinâ€™s Rhetorical Doctrine of Sin, and What is Rhetorical Theology? Textual Practice and Public Discourse. Listening to Popular Music includes discussions of rock and roll, blues, country, hip-hop, , history, culture, faith, and, of course, the Beatles. Compier's lecture will be held in Union 237B on October 1, 2013 at 2:00. Refreshments and a book signing will follow. For additional information email Dr. Marla J. Selvidge, Professor and Director of the Center for Religious Studies at email@example.com. Phone Dr. Selvidge at 660-543-8674.
