Evening Lecture: The Future of Theology Revisited: Painful or Promising?

Dr. Karl Hefty

Date: April 24, 2019, 7:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Guigues Hall, Room 103

Available to view online here* on April 24 at 7:00 p.m.

 

Observers have long speculated about the demise of theology. Many simply take it as a fait accompli. In the face of rapid technological change, social and economic uncertainty, and the aftershocks of globalization, do we seriously expect any concrete solutions from theology? This talk will explore the dire conditions and urgent questions that any theology of the future must face. It will also show why, contrary to popular belief, theological thinking is uniquely suited to meet today’s challenges.       

Karl Hefty is Assistant Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology at Saint Paul University. Trained in theology and the philosophy of religion at the University of Chicago and the University of Cambridge, his teaching and research focus on the question of revelation and its bearing on Christology, hermeneutics, and theological method. His first book will examine an approach to revelation through the phenomenology of life. His English translation of Michel Henry’s Incarnation: A Philosophy of Flesh was published by Northwestern University Press in 2015.
