      J. Bradley Wigger, a minister ordained in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), served churches in Colorado and Wisconsin, was a social worker working with children and their families in a school of special education, and taught at Princeton Theological Seminary and Marian College of Fond du Lac, Wisc., before joining the faculty at Louisville Seminary in 1997.

      “Families, homes, and congregations are crucial to the Church’s teaching ministry; they are realms which potentially form and transform our ideas about life, our patterns of relationship, our notions of who we are, our sense of vocation and purpose, as well as our ways of being with others. For most, homes and congregations are the realms in which our sense of God emerges or not.”

      Dr. Wigger is a contributor to the Presbyterian Presence Series, researching and co-writing a chapter in The Pluralistic Vision. He was a researcher for the Lilly-Gallup “Religion and Small Group” study, directed by Robert Wuthnow, which led to a chapter in I Come Away Stronger: How Small Groups Are Shaping American Religion (1994). He has also written the book, The Texture of Mystery: An Interdisciplinary Inquiry into Perception and Learning (Bucknell University Press, 1998), based on his Ph.D. research, and The Power of God at Home: Nurturing Our Children in Love and Grace (Jossey-Bass, 2003).
