April 10, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am EDT
Dr. Chris Boesel speaks on Swiss theologian Karl Barth, with a lecture entitled, Karl Barth: Why the News is Good(!), and How that Changes Everything. Often regarded as the greatest Protestant theologian of the twentieth century, Barth emphasized the sovereignty of God and the centrality of Christ. Barth’s influence also extended to the mainstream culture, as evidenced by the fact that he was featured on the cover of Time magazine on April 20, 1962. Dr. Boesel is an assistant professor of Christian Theology at The Theological and Graduate Schools of Drew University.
