Theology, Race, and the New Humanity
Sunday, October 14, 4:00pm - 5:30pm 2018
Are there theological imaginations that aid and abet racism? In his acclaimed 2008 book, Race: A Theological Account, J. Kameron Carter suggests that a return to the early eastern Christian visions can key an elevation of race conversations to a new, more redemptive level. This workshop will report and explain the theses of Carter’s book, including his use of Irenaeus, Gregory of Nyssa, and Maximus the Confessor to resource a new vision of race relations.
