May 18, 2018 / 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
ABSW Chapel, 2606 Dwight Way, Berkeley, California

This event is part of the Berkeley Public Theology Program series Sacred Texts, Public Talks. These meetings bring together diverse scholars to discuss key religious issues in a public setting. They are co-hosted in partnership with area organizations, and take place off the Berkeley campus. Their aim is to unsettle both sacred and secular commonplaces, and to energize public engagement, sympathetic and critical, with the claims of religion.
