Part of the IFC’s 2017 Two-Day Symposium on Religious and Political Disagreement
Thursday, April 20, 2017, 3:45 p.m.
St. Olaf College, Tomson Hall 280
Miroslav Volf’s lecture will focus on negotiating differences in pluralistic societies while remaining true to our deepest (and often tradition-based) commitments. This is one of central issues that his recent book, Flourishing: Why We Need Religion in a Globalized World, takes up. In his talk, Volf will elaborate on why living as Christians in the context of “contending particular universalism” matters and what it takes to do so.
