A Theology of Exile for Veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan

A Bible Study

This 6-part Bible study developed specifically for veterans was created by Jane Donovan, D.Min while attending Wesley Theological Seminary for her doctor of ministry degree. Donovan is now a professor in the program for Religious Studies at West Virginia University where she has led the Bible study for student groups and veterans at area UMC congregations.

She has graciously given JustPeace permission to share her Bible study online and congregations have permission to adapt this curriculum as necessary for their particular situations. This curriculum also works well for a weekend retreat (combining Sessions 1 & 2 on Friday night and the rest on Saturday).
