Yale Theologian Lectures on Islam and Christiantiy – Seattle, Feb. 8-9

Yale Prof. Miroslav Volf will be visiting from New Haven on Feb. 8-9 to deliver the following three lectures on Christianity and Islam. All three talks center on the theme: “Allah: A Christian Response.”

Friday, February 8, 2013, 7—8:30 p.m.
Do Muslims and Christians Believe in the Same God?
Saturday, February 9, 2013, 9 a.m.—12:00 noon
2 lectures: God’s unity, in Christianity and Islam
God’s love and love of enemy, in Christianity and Islam

Prof. Volf serves as Director of the Yale Center for Faith & Culture and Henry B. Wright Professor of Theology at Yale Univer­sity Divinity School. In addition to Yale’s new Faith and Globalization Course that he co-teaches with former Prime Minister Tony Blair, he leads courses on sys­tematic theology, Luther and Schleiermacher, and contemporary conceptions of God.

A na­tive of Croatia, Prof. Volf has forged a theology of forgiveness and non­violence in the face of violence experienced in Croatia and Serbia in the 1990s. His research spans topics such as human work, the church, the Trinity, violence, reconciliation, gift­giving, and memory of wrongs. Miroslav has argued in many contexts for Christian faith to be seen not as an additive to help us cope with this or that problem, but as a way of life. Faith, he argues, matters in all spheres of life.
