J. Kameron Carter to Present Lecture Series
Dr. J. Kameron Carter will present three lectures as part of Covenant’s ongoing series of academic lectures, beginning Monday, January 28, 2013. Dr. Carter teaches theology and black church studies at the Divinity School at Duke University. He is the author of Race: A Theological Account and is completing a new book entitled The Secular Jesus: Religion and the Project of Civilization.
"At Covenant, part of our desire is not simply to ‘talk to ourselves,’ but to engage people and ideas that challenge our assumptions and cause us to think hard thoughts and ask difficult questions,” says Dr. Kelly Kapic, professor of theological studies. “With that in mind, it is a real delight that J. Kameron Carter is coming to Covenant. Dr. Carter continues to wrestle through questions about how in the West our complicated and problematic history of race affects our understanding of Christianity in general, and our view of Christ in particular. He believes all of this profoundly affects our theological imagination.”
All three lectures are free and open to the public.
