The Truth and Limits of the Atheist Critique
Thursday, January 29th, 7:00 PM
There is no doubt that religion has played an intellectually and morally ambiguous role in human culture. Indeed, some forms of religion are as bad as atheists throughout history have suggested. The recent popular critiques by atheists such as Dawkins, Harris and Hitchens have reinvigorated the conversation. Borg will articulate an understanding of God that is not vulnerable to their critique.
Marcus Borg, Hundere Distinguished Professor of Religion and Culture at Oregon State University, is an internationally known Biblical and Jesus scholar. He is the author of sixteen books, including Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time, The God We Never Knew, and The Heart of Christianity. His ability to make complicated theological and historical teachings accessible and alive to a wide range of audiences has led to his appearance on many national television shows.
