Dr. J. Kameron Carter will present three lectures on Monday and Tuesday, as part of Covenant College’s ongoing series of academic lectures.

Dr. Carter teaches theology and black church studies at Duke Divinity School. He is the author of Race: A Theological Account and is completing a new book entitled The Secular Jesus: Religion and the Project of Civilization.

“At Covenant, part of our desire is not simply to ‘talk to ourselves,’ but to engage people and ideas that challenge our assumptions and cause us to think hard thoughts and ask difficult questions,” said Professor Kelly Kapic.

“With that in mind, it is a real delight that J. Kameron Carter is coming to Covenant. Dr. Carter continues to wrestle through questions about how in the West our complicated and problematic history of race affects our understanding of Christianity in general, and our view of Christ in particular. He believes all of this profoundly affects our theological imagination.”

All three lectures are free and open to the public.

Signal Mountain Should Be Problem Solvers Around The City

Re: Roy Exum’s “Stay, Signal Mountain, Stay”  Well this article is something to think about. I think the split could go either way, and Signal Mountain schools would still flourish, as they have done for the past several years. What I'm worried about is why Signal Mountain has not yet had the guts to go be problem solvers at Howard, or Tyner, or Central. Why do ... (click for more)
