People at Laurier
Dr. Robert A. Kelly is a native of Southern California who has been at Waterloo Lutheran Seminary since 1985 teaching Systematic Theology, Historical Theology, and Christian Ethics. Currently he is the Bishop William D. Huras Professor of Church History and Ecclesiology. When asked about his approach to teaching theology Bob says, "I want my students to join with me in becoming a community of theological deliberation, a community of convivial theologians who together through friendly and committed scholarly conversation explore the meaning of the Gospel for the lives of real people." That's a big challenge! Bob's classes are demanding, but there is often a surprise, a new insight that comes through engagement. Bob's current research involves preserving and editing nineteenth century theological works through the internet.
