Four faculty members from the Pierson School of Theology at Pyeongtaek University in Korea brought a film crew to the United States this summer as part of a documentary film project to chronicle the life of Arthur Tappan Pierson (1837-1911), a key figure in the modern missionary movement. His visit to Korea inspired the founding of the school that bears his name. Prof. Dana Robert is Pierson’s biographer. Her book, “Occupy Until I Come: A.T. Pierson and the Evangelization of the World” was published in 2003.
Interviewing Prof. Robert were Dr. Yoon Jong Yoo, Dean of Pierson School of Theology, and Associate Professor of Old Testament, Dr. Kwang Hee Lee, Director of the Pierson Memorial Bible Institute, and Associate Professor of Practical Theology, Dr. Dang Youl Cho, Executive Director of the Pierson Memorial Bible Institute, and Assistant Professor of Old Testament and Dr. Won Ryul Ryu, Assistant Professor of Preaching. Here are some photos from the day of the filming.
