2006 Theological Conversation

Sponsored by Emergent, the Yale Center for Faith and Culture, Zondervan Publishing, and Abingdon Press/Cokesbury Bookstores.

For several years, Emergent has been convening a conversations with preeminent American theologians in hopes of advancing and sophisticating our movement. This time, we'll be meeting with Miroslav Volf, one of the leading theologians on the scene today. After growing up behind the Iron Curtain, the son of a Pentecostal pastor, Volf studied with Jurgen Moltmann. He taught for several years at Fuller Theological Seminary before taking his current position as the Henry B. Wright Professor of Theology at Yale University Divinity School. He also directs the Yale Center for Faith and Culture. Volf's theological interest lies in the intersection of faith and life, and he has written extensively on issues of work, ecclesiology, and forgiveness. Our conversation with him will be an intersection of his writings and musings and the development of the emerging church.
