The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary offers a new, interactive workshop May 31-June 6, 2008 in ethnodoxology, the cutting-edge field integrating ethnomusicology and the arts with worship applications. The course “Introduction to Ethnodoxology: Connecting Global Worship to Global Mission” will be taught by a team of scholars and global song experts from the International Council of Ethnodoxologists (ICE). The course equips students to cultivate culturally appropriate, biblical worship in international or multi-ethnic contexts. Better act fast if you want the early registration discount (postmark by May 15) — $375.00. If you wait ’til after May 15, it’s $100 more. The workshop Fee is for noncredit. Graduate credit (3 hours) is also available. See
