Inaugural Lecture – Joel Okamoto – October 9, 2014
On Thursday, October 9, Professor Joel Okamoto will deliver the inaugural lecture of the The Waldemar and Mary Griesbach Endowed Chair in Systematic Theology Chair in Systematic Theology.
The title: “The Madman’s Time Has Come: Theology After the Death of God”
When Friedrich Nietzsche’s Madman announced, “God is dead,” he concluded that news of the event hadn’t reached most people. “My time has not yet come,” he said. But now the Madman’s time has come—and so has the time for theology to confront the (so-called) death of God.
Date: Thursday, October 9, 2014.
Time: 4pm – 4:45pm
Place: Werner Auditorium
Reception to follow on Chapel Plaza from 4:45pm-5:30pm.
The lecture will be videotaped and will be offered on iTunes U shortly thereafter.
