This event is part of Westar Institute's Jesus Seminar on the Road program, which brings religion scholars into conversation with the interested public. Join scholars Joe Bessler and David Galston as they discuss the future of God.
The early church relied on Plato, not Jesus, to talk about God. How did this come about? Religious studies scholars Joe Bessler and David Galston will explain, and show how later generations came to challenge the classical model of God. Bessler and Galston will engage participants in conversation about new language for God, assess recent attempts to accuse or defend God, and attempt to answer the pressing question, “Does God have a future?”
The event will be held Sep 19-20 at Plymouth Congregational Church of Ft. Wayne, 501 W. Berry St., Fort Wayne, IN 46802.
