Woodward Theological Society lecture series

More news out of Detroit... the Woodward Theological Society is about to start its lecture series, "designed to highlight local and regional scholarship, to promote theological discussions in Metro Detroit, and to network interested individuals together."  Their first lecturer will be Mary Healy S.T.D., who will speak on May 7th on "The Hermeneutic of Jesus".  From the website: "Her talk, The Hermeneutic of Jesus, argues for a Christological reading of the Old Testament taking a detailed look at Jesus’ own manner of interpreting the Old Testament in the Gospel of Mark."

You can find more information about the lecture series, Dr. Healy, and a flyer for the event at the WTS website.  Be sure to also poke around and read their previous interviews with James K.A. Smith and  J. Todd Billings.  Thanks to Mike Dagle and Dean Simmer for all of the work that they're doing for theological training in the Detroit area.

  1. Thanks for sharing! We'll have more to come in the next few weeks as well so even if people can't make the lecture they should stay tuned. They can also sign up for the enewsletter to get updates that way.
