Samford Classics alumnus Adam Borneman `05 has published the book The Social and Political Dimensions of John Williamson Nevin’s Theology of Incarnation (Wipf and Stock, 2011).
The book grew out of work Borneman began while earning M.Div. and Th.M. degrees at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, Mass. He said the book explores how Nevin's 19th century theology might inform rethinking of the church's relationship to culture and society.
Borneman served as a hospital chaplain when he returned to Birmingham in 2009. He has served as Pastor of Second Presbyterian Church in Homewood since October 2010.
"I am quite grateful for the education I received at Samford, not least because I had professors who encouraged me not to be lazy with my research and writing," Borneman said. "Most importantly, I cherish the many close friendships that I still have with former professors and alumni from Samford. The encouragement I continue to receive from that community of people makes projects like this possible."
