Nicholas Wolterstorff to give Kantzer Lectures in Revealed Theology

Pentecost

This year’s Kantzer Lectures in Revealed Theology will be given by Nicholas Wolterstorff, Noah Porter Emeritus Professor of Philosophical Theology at Yale University. His subject, “The God We Worship: A Liturgical Theology,” will be unfolded over the course of eight lectures between October 1 and October 7, 2013. And remember, if you’re unable to join us in person, join us online for the live-stream at stream.tiu.edu

The Henry Center has the following summary of the purpose of the Kantzer Lectures as well as the proposed course of Wolterstorff’s material:

Evangelical theology’s contribution to the contemporary church is its passion to root Christian thinking in the realities of the gospel of Jesus Christ. To focus on revealed theology is not to bury our heads in ancient Palestinian sand, but to approach our era’s most pressing challenges with the resources of Trinitarian faith. The Kantzer Lectures provide a platform for this kind of Christian thinking.

In these lectures, Nicholas Wolterstorff will make explicit the understanding of God that is implicit in Christian liturgy, then articulate that understanding. Wolterstorff will discuss the nature of liturgy in general, and of Christian liturgy in particular, and explain what it is to make explicit what is implicit.
