Evening Theology Class: Biblical JusticeAdd to My Calendar
Wednesday, February 13, 2019
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Andrew Hall, Parish House
On the Wednesdays of February 13, 20, and 27 from 6:30-8:00pm, join us for a special Evening Theology Course as we welcome our special guest, Jeremy Waldron, professor of legal and political philosophy at NYU School of Law. He will lead a series of classes on the biblical perspective of justice and judgement in the light of the prophetic tradition of the Hebrew Scripture. A prolific scholar, Waldron has written extensively on jurisprudence and political theory, including numerous books and articles on theories of rights, constitutionalism, the rule of law, democracy, property, torture, security, homelessness, and the philosophy of international law. Light refreshments will be provided.
This first session will focus on the prophet Amos and the place of justice in his nine chapters. Amos is a short book (7 or 8 pages) and it will be helpful if participants can read it through in advance. Two other classes will follow on the next two Wednesdays: February 20 and 27. Everyone is welcome.
