Liberty and Tolerance in an Age of Religious Conflict: The Wounds of God

Nicholaswolterstorff1

September 8, 2011 | 07:00PM

TBA

»rsvp required

A full case for religious tolerance that employed the resources of Christian scripture and the Christian theological tradition would argue that Christian scripture and theology permit religious tolerance, that human persons, one and all, have dignity, and that religious intolerance is a violation of that dignity. In this lecture, Nicholas Wolterstorff will point to a theme in the Christian tradition concerning the significance of perpetrating on someone the injustice of religious intolerance, or any other sort of injustice. To treat someone unjustly, to violate their worth or dignity, is not only to wrong them but is also to wrong God. His lecture will take the form of an exposition of John Calvin's theology of social injustice, since this theme is more prominent in the thought of John Calvin than in any other theologian from the tradition.

This event is part of a series commemorating the 10th anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2001. For the full schedule and additional information on the events, please visit the event page here.
