Canceled: Fretheim Lecture in Biblical Theology
Dr. Walter Brueggemann
Professor Emeritus of Old Testament, Columbia Theological Seminary
***Due to a severe ice storm in the Cincinnati area, Dr. Walter Brueggemann, our guest speaker for the inaugural Terry E. and Faith L. Fretheim Lecture in Biblical Theology, is unable to travel to St. Paul. Unfortunately, that means the Fretheim Lecture, originally scheduled for today at 7 p.m., is cancelled. The conversation between Brueggemann and Fretheim, scheduled for Tuesday, March 4 from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., is also canceled. We are working on rescheduling these events and will communicate any developments.***
***The KAIROS classes scheduled for today and March 4 will continue as planned.***
"Why the Old Testament Must not Go Away"
March 3, 2014
This presentation will consider efforts in the church to deny the Old Testament and explore what is at stake in it for the church. Brueggemann will propose that its cruciality is found in the God who inhabits the text, a God who, in contrast, keeps the future open, engages in dialogic freedom, and subverts unbearable presents. The denial (or engagement with) the Old Testament is never a disinterested matter, but is always a matter that concerns material interests as well as well as intellectual probity.
