John Cobb & Friends Gathering – Catherine Keller
June 29, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm PDT
Presenter(s): Catherine Keller
Topic: Facing Apocalypse—Climate, Democracy, and Other Last Chances
When she wrote Apocalypse Now and Then in 1996, Catherine Keller, George T. Cobb Professor of Constructive Theology at Drew Theological School, thought she was finished with the Apocalypse theme. It’s back, not as disastrous ending, but as an “unveiling,” prompted by the last book of the Christian New Testament and our current reality. It’s a “dreamreading” of our current global crisis. Watch Drew’s celebratory book launch event here, which includes extensive dialogue with Dr. Keller. There you’ll discover Jürgen Moltmann’s judgment that this is “a brilliant work,” and Tripp Fuller’s affirmation, “By holding the apocalyptic text and the signs of the times in a generative and revelatory tension, Keller makes this ancient text shake and quake our present moment.” Find out more information about Facing Apocalypse at Orbis Press, or listen to a radio interview with her publisher, Robert Ellsberg.
