Evening Theology Class: Biblical JusticeAdd to My Calendar
Wednesday, February 27, 2019
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Andrew Hall, Parish House
Due to a cancellation of one of our classes because of inclement weather, a make-up session of this class will be held the evening of Wednesday, March 13 from 6:30-8:00 pm in Andrew Hall. We are grateful for Professor Waldron for making the time to finish his course under these circumstances.
At this special Evening Theology Course we welcome our special guest, Jeremy Waldron, professor of legal and political philosophy at NYU School of Law. He continues to lead a series of classes on the biblical perspective of justice and judgement in the light of the prophetic tradition of the Hebrew Scripture. This is the final class of this series.
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.
The bookstore has ordered the following books in relation to this course: Walter Houston, “Justice: The Biblical Challenge” (2014) and Enrique Nardoni, “Rise Up O Judge: A Study of Justice in the Biblical World” (2010). These books are for background reading only. Everyone is welcome.
