As part of Covenant College’s ongoing series of academic lectures, Dr. J. Kameron Carter will present three discourses Jan. 28-29.
Carter teaches black church studies and theology at Duke Divinity School. He wrote “Race: A Theological Account” and is working on “The Secular Jesus: Religion and the Project of Civilization.”
“At Covenant, part of our desire is not simply to ‘talk to ourselves,’ but to engage people and ideas that challenge our assumptions and cause us to think hard thoughts and ask difficult questions,” Professor Kelly Kapic said in a prepared statement. “With that in mind, it is a real delight that J. Kameron Carter is coming to Covenant. Dr. Carter continues to wrestle through questions about how, in the West, our complicated and problematic history of race affects our understanding of Christianity in general and our view of Christ in particular. He believes all of this profoundly affects our theological imagination.”
All three lectures are free and open to the public.
