TOPIC - Really Good Laughs: A Theology of Humor
DESCRIPTION - How many bureaucrats does it takes to screw in a light bulb? Come find out at this wacky, brainy, deep theological discussion. Together we will consider the ethics of laughing, the elements of humor, and the character of God who fills creation with hilarity and mirth.
BIOGRAPHY - Dr. Sumner holds a Ph.D. in Systematic Theology from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and an MBA from Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, CA. She was trained as a Global Change Agent in the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
Sarah Sumner is the first woman to have graduated with a Ph.D. in Systematic Theology from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and the only woman theologian in the United States to have served as dean of a conservative evangelical seminary. Within the first sixteen months under her leadership, A.W. Tozer Theological Seminary broke three all-time records in 34 years.
She has four published books including Men and Women in the Church: Building Consensus on Christian Leadership (IVP, 2003; now in its 12th printing), Leadership Above the Line (Tyndale, 2006), Just How Married Do You Want To Be?
