News Release: Peter DeHaan Earns Second PhD
Lifelong Learner Focuses on Spiritual Issues
Mattawan, Michigan, September 24, 2012—Peter DeHaan recently completed a second PhD, this one from Trinity College of the Bible and Trinity Theological Seminary. The Doctor of Philosophy degree was awarded “with high distinction” and is endorsed by Canterbury Christ Church University, England. It was conferred on June 15, 2012.
“Earning my first PhD was a lifelong goal, which I planned would end my formal education,” stated DeHaan. “But I later felt a prompting to go back for more education, this time focusing on spirituality. The result is my second PhD. This one took longer to realize but is also more rewarding.”
In the course of his studies, Peter researched and completed his dissertation, entitled The Convergent Church: Moving Towards The Unity For Which Jesus Prayed. He is currently seeking to publish it as a dissertation in order to further academic discourse on the subject, as well as to rework it into a more accessible text that will have greater appeal and wider application.
In the course of working on this dissertation, Peter realized a growing passion to write about spiritual issues. Having now completed his dissertation, he is presently in the writing stages of two books, with several more in various stages of development. He is also an active blogger, addressing his passion to explore spiritual matters and the Bible; those posts are accessible from his website.
Peter’s first PhD is a Doctor of Philosophy in Business Administration, awarded on May 13, 2000.
