As a noted theologian, John’s recent review of Collected Writings on Orthodox Christianity: Various Aspects of Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Churches Alexander, George, editor; OCP Publications: Kerala, India (Second Edition, June 2016) has been featured several places including the OCP Media Network.


When asked about the addition, Dr. Barnes shared, “This is the caliber of theological education that Cummins is seeking to bring to the Charleston Metropolitan area.  We are beyond blessed to have John as a part of the Cummins family. This is the first of several major developments we anticipate introducing over the next couple years.”
