After taking a degree in science education at the University of Minnesota (B.S. Ed., physics and chemistry, 1981), Dr. Kallenberg spent a decade in campus ministry throughout the upper Midwest. At the end of this time and still with an eye to ministry, Dr. Kallenberg entered graduate school to study theology. After completing an M.A. in biblical studies and theology, he completed the Ph.D. in philosophical theology and ethics at Fuller Theological Seminary (Pasedena, CA). He taught at a number of years at a variety of schools (including St. Petersburg Academy, Russia!) before moving to Ohio in the fall of 2001 to join the religious studies department at UD. He teaches a variety of ethics courses, including "Christian Ethics and Engineering," for both graduate and undergraduate students.
Despite the colder winters (I moved here from California!), I have found a warm home among the religious studies faculty at UD. Being the token Protestant in the department, I was understandably nervous when I began to teach here in the fall of 2001. Yet, I was surprised to discover many conceptual friends among fellow faculty and am constantly enriched by the conversations into which I am warmly welcomed.
