NEW! Theologians of the 20th Century Crises
5 sessions, 12.5 hours
The 20th Century was a time of theological upheaval and great popular interest in theologians who were responding to the Great Depression, the World Wars, the Cold War, and the discovery of hominid evolution. This class considers five of the most diverse and widely read: Reinhold Niebuhr, Karl Barth, Paul Tillich, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, and Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Each class includes a 2-hour PowerPoint presentation with a 10 minute break midway and a discussion period of half an hour afterwards. A handout includes recommendations for further study and additional relevant reading or reference material.
Instructor: Karen Gray, Ph.D., received her S.T.B. degree from Harvard Divinity School and her Ph.D. from the University of Edinburgh where her thesis was on “Religious Atheism in Contemporary Western Thought: A Christian Problem and a Buddhist Perspective.” She recently retired after 20 years with the Smithsonian Associates designing adult study tours. She has had a lifelong fascination with the world’s religions which she approaches with openness and from a scholarly perspective.
