Books on Faith & Meaning A Conversation with Willie James Jennings

Tuesday, November 17, 2020, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


As people committed to fighting against racism, what are we fighting for? In After Whiteness: An Education in Belonging (Theological Education between the Times), Prof. Willie James Jennings describes insights gained from his extensive experience in theological education, examines how ideas of whiteness distort our understanding of community, and proposes new ways of belonging to one another.

Join us on November 17th at 12 pm for a Zoom conversation between Faith Initiative Director, Dr. Matthew Croasmun and Willie Jennings. Through Professor Jennings’ powerful vision of life and mutual belonging, we will examine how we might reimagine the intellectual heritage of Christian theology within our current struggles for community, with a goal to transgress boundaries that have existed for centuries.

Our Books on Faith & Meaning series consists of monthly presentations introducing selections from the Faith & Meaning section of the Grace Farms Library. Spanning multiple religious and philosophical traditions, both ancient and contemporary, these texts encourage us to think critically about the meaning in our lives.
