Graduate Theological Union

Lewis Mudge Book Forum

Dates: 
Thursday, May 15, 2014 - 12:30pm
Dinner Boardroom, GTU Library, 2400 Ridge Rd., Berkeley.
 
The GTU will host a book forum on a posthumously published book by the late Lewis S. Mudge, a distinguished theologian and pioneer of ecumenism and interfaith dialogue who taught theology and ethics at the San Francisco Theological Seminary for many years prior to his death in 2009.
 
We Can Make the World Economy a Sustainable Global Home (Eerdmans, 2014) offers fresh philosophical and theological concepts, economic and political insights, and practical financial proposals to counter the causes and lasting effects of the worldwide recession that began in late 2007 and is still
affecting us today.
 
Jean Mudge, who edited the volume for publication, will provide an overview of the book. There will be three responses given by Dr. Christopher Ocker (Professor of Church History, SFTS), Dr. Som Pourfarzaneh (Associate Director of Public Programs and Lecturer in the Center for Islamic Studies), and Rabbi Stephen Pearce (Visiting Professor of Pastoral Care in the Center for Jewish Studies).
