Evening Theology Class: Biblical Justice

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.

On Wednesday February 27 from 6:30-8:00pm in Andrew Hall on the third floor of the parish house 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 the next in 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.

The first session was on February 13 during which Dr. Waldron discussed the book of Amos. There was a class scheduled for February 20 that was cancelled due to inclement weather. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused.

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). But these books are for background reading only; the class will not assume familiarity with them.
