Event description
A lecture by Yale Divinity School Professor Miroslav Volf in the Generous Orthodoxy lecture series at St Mellitus College.

About this Event

The Love of God, the home of God

Generous orthodoxy is in part about theological discourse: whether it is open and embracing (like Karl Rahner’s, for instance) or strident and excluding (like Karl Barth’s). But it is above all about the content of theological claims. In the lecture, I will argue that the Christian “story of everything” is a generous story: It begins with the love of God who is love and it reaches culmination in the entire world becoming the home of God and the true home of human beings.

Miroslav Volf was educated in his native Croatia, the United States, and Germany. He earned doctoral and post-doctoral degrees (with highest honors) from the University of Tuebingen, Germany. He has written or edited more than 20 books and over 90 scholarly articles. His most significant books include Exclusion and Embrace (1996); After Our Likeness (1998) in which he explores the Trinitarian nature of ecclesial community; Allah: A Christian Response (2011), on whether Muslims and Christians have a common God; and A Public Faith: On How Followers of Christ Should Serve the Common Good (2011). Volf is the Henry B. Wright Professor of Systematic Theology at Yale Divinity School, and Founding Director, Yale Center for Faith & Culture.
