Greg Wolfe Lecture & Discussion

Date(s)
2/10/2016 7:00 p.m.
Description
Gregory Wolfe has been called “one of the most incisive and persuasive voices of our generation” (Ron Hansen). He has been a pioneer in the resurgence of interest in the relationship between art and religion—a resurgence that has had widespread impact both on religious communities and the public square. As an advocate for and exemplar of the tradition of Christian Humanism, Wolfe has established a reputation as an independent, non-ideological thinker—part gadfly, part peacemaker. Wolfe is the founder and editor of Image Journal and has served as Writer-in-Residence at Seattle Pacific University since 2000. His books include Beauty Will Save the World: Recovering the Human in an Ideological Age (ISI Books, 2011), Intruding Upon the Timeless: Meditations on Art, Faith, and Mystery (Square Halo, 2003).
