Theology Department Will Host Virtual Book Discussions About Race

Dr. Martin Luther King observed that 11 o’clock on Sunday mornings is the most segregated hour in America. Why does the church so often fail to confront racist structures in society, and even perpetuate them? How might the claims of the gospel offer hope for renewal and reconciliation in our lives, in the church, and on our campus?

Join us this fall for an online book discussion on the new release, Bonhoeffer and the Racialized Church. Author Ross Halbach explores the Lutheran-grounded theology of Dietrich Bonhoeffer in conjunction with contemporary theologians Willie Jennings, J. Kameron Carter, and Brian Bantum.

The series will begin Monday, Sept. 14 and conclude on Monday Dec 7. All faculty, staff, and students are welcome.
