Bass, Dorothy

Dorothy worked with an ecumenical and interracial group of authors to develop Practicing Our Faith: A Way of Life for a Searching People (Jossey-Bass Publishers, 1997). This book addresses the contemporary hunger for a way of life that can be lived with integrity amidst the many changes of our time by advocating the retrieval of twelve Christian practices.

Dorothy is also the author of Receiving the Day: Christian Practices for Opening the Gift of Time (Jossey-Bass Publishers, 2000), co-editor of Practicing Theology: Beliefs and Practices in Christian Life (Eerdmans, 2002), and co-editor of Way to Live: Christian Practices for Teens (Upper Room Books, 2002). Dorothy serves on the Board of Directors for Holden Village. A graduate of Wellesley College, Union Theological Seminary in New York City, and Brown University, Dorothy has taught at several colleges and theological schools. She is the mother of two college students and the wife of Mark Schwehn, who teaches in Christ College at Valparaiso University and is Project Director for the Lilly Fellows Program in Humanities and the Arts.

Dorothy serves on the advisory boards for the Valparaiso Project Practice Grants Program and the Way to Live Challenge Grants Program
