Christianity and the Great Books

In the third quarter of our series on Intersections, we will focus on Christianity and the “Great Books.” The ideas and attitudes that permeate our lives did not form in a vacuum. They are instead the result of thousands of years of conversation among philosophers, theologians, artists, economists, scientists, and others. To understand ourselves, it is well worth the effort to understand where we came from. To that end, speakers this quarter will talk about “Great Books” authors who have influenced our world and how we as Christians can think about what they accomplished. We invite you to join us.
