Dennis Hamm, S.J.

Professor Emeritus in the Department of Theology.

Scholar in residence in the Jesuit Community at Creighton.


 

More about me:

I’ve been a Jesuit since 1958 and a priest since 1970.

As of the spring semester of 2014, I retired from full-time employment at Creighton University, but still present as Professor Emeritus of Theology and scholar in residence in the local Jesuit community.

My entertainment -- movies, theatre, and eating out. My last out-of-town academic sabbatical was spent at Tantur, an ecumenical research center situated on the south edge of Jerusalem, just next to the Israeli check-point on the road from Jerusalem into Bethlehem. I arrived the day before 9/11/01, and spent the next eight months watching the world from that location. If my reflections get 'a little political' sometimes, that's why.

Fr. Hammís most recent book is Philippians, Colossians, Philemon and is available to purchase through the publisher: http://bakerpublishinggroup.com/books/philippians-colossians-philemon/314330 .

Another book, Building Our House on Rock: Jesusí Vision for our Lives, as Told by Matthew and Luke is available on amazon.com here:  http://www.amazon.com/Building-Our-House-Rock-Matthew/dp/1593251815

Writing these reflections:

Writing these reflections is like sharing on the Word at a weekday Eucharist--simply part of what my life is about. I'm glad for the opportunity to listen with and for others.
