February 12–26, 2020
2020 Theologian in Residence at Tusculum University
The 2020 Tusculum College lectures are centered on a theology of the prophets – an examination of the Old Testament prophetic tradition with particular attention to the way the prophets were likely seen and heard in their times. We will trace six themes that stand out within the ministries of several biblical prophets – speaking truth to power, taking stock of our history, indicting empty worship, advocating for poor people and working people, and pursuing justice. Each lecture will address these themes and the biblical prophets who called for their enactment in ancient Israel. Each theme will be connected to a modern, 20th century person who exemplified this same passion in their day.
