Join us for a conversation with world-renowned theologian Miroslav Volf and co-author Matthew Croasmun about their new book For the Life of the World: Theology that Makes a Difference. Hear about their research and examination of what constitutes a flourishing life, and discover how we can meet the cultural challenges of an ever-changing world.

 

About the book | For the Life of the World: Theology that Makes a Difference by Miroslav Volf and Matthew Croasmun

The question of what makes a life worth living is more vital now than ever. In today’s pluralistic, post-secular world, universal values are dismissed as mere matters of private opinion, and the question of what constitutes a flourishing life–for ourselves, our neighbors, and the planet as a whole–is neglected in our universities, our churches, and our culture at large. Although we increasingly have the technology to do almost anything, we have little sense of what is truly worth accomplishing.

In this provocative new contribution to public theology, world-renowned theologian Miroslav Volf (named “America’s New Public Intellectual” by Scot McKnight on his Jesus Creed blog) and Matthew Croasmun explain that the intellectual tools needed to rescue us from our present malaise and meet our new cultural challenge are the tools of theology. A renewal of theology is vital to help us articulate compelling visions of the good life, find our way through the maze of contested questions of value, and answer the fundamental question of what makes a life worth living.
