Prof. Ephraim Radner to Give the Palmer Lectures at Seattle-Pacific University: Is Christ Divided? Locating the Possibility of the True Church.
Wednesday March 4th, 2009
The week of March 9 Dr. Radner, Professor of Historical Theology at Wycliffe, will give the 2009 Palmer Lectures and related presentations at Seattle Pacific University. The Palmer lectures have been offered in the past by Thomas Oden, William Willimon, Clark Pinnock and Kallistos Ware, among others. Radner will speak on the nature of Christian reconciliation within a divided church. He will discuss how long-standing divisions among Christians appear to contradict the Scripture’s claim that “the Church is One.” Dr. Radner will seek to describe the oneness of the Church in a way that respects historical reality and Christian truth-claims together, pointing in a direction that challenges Christian witness and self-identity.
