How to Survive the Apocalypse

Kathleen Cahalan has found her calling (or one of them, at least) in the study of calling. Cahalan is director of the Collegeville Institute Seminars, which have been dedicated since 2010 to studying vocation across the lifespan, through professions, and through interfaith perspectives. Over the next two years, Cahalan will be publishing three books with Eerdmans that explore the concept of calling. The first, Calling in Today's World: Voices from Eight Interfaith Perspectives, co-edited with Douglas J. Schuurman, will be released on July 28.

In addition to her work at the Collegeville Institute, Kathleen Cahalan is professor of theology at St. John's School of Theology and Seminary in Minnesota. She earned her PhD in practical theology from the University of Chicago Divinity School, and she has authored or edited several books in the field of practical theology, including Christian Practical Wisdom: What It Is, Why It Matters, co-authored with Dorothy C. Bass, Bonnie J. Miller-McLemore, James R. Nieman, and Christian B. Scharen. Her work has been dedicated to the idea that theory and practice shape each other, and that knowledge is not just conceptual but also embedded in practice, which is itself a way to communicate theologically.
