Editor’s Introduction

It’s hard to overstate the importance the presence of Dr. Christopher Morse
on Union Theological Seminary’s campus over the last several decades has had. The variety of articles in this special double issue of Union Seminary Quarterly Review suggest this immense importance in all the diverse ways it has been felt. Dr. Morse has served as a professor, a mentor, a preacher, and a pastor to many people who have come in and gone out Union’s doors. The articles contained within are roughly divided into sections that reflect these different roles as well as the different key aspects of Dr. Morse’s work, both in the past and present. Anyone who has taken the foundational ST 104 class during his tenure at the seminary will recognize their own experience in that class and, hopefully, fondly remember their own experiences of working through doctrines, doing dogmatics as the work of "faithful disbelief," and perhaps most of all, constructing an utrum paper. The latter is represented within, both explicitly as well as implicitly in form: indeed, it’s an exercise and a way of thinking that is critical to develop in order to have a well reasoned stance on the important issues, historically and contemporarily, in the church and theology.
