Jürgen Moltmann will be speaking at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology this Fall at a conference titled “Unfinished Worlds: Jürgen Moltmann at 90.” It takes place October 19-20, 2016 in Atlanta. I was able to see Moltmann last year at Princeton (when he was 89!) and felt at the time that it would be my last chance to do so. I’m delighted that this conference may be another opportunity! It is my hope to attend but I haven’t yet figured out the logistics.

The topic of Moltmann’s lecture will be “Unfinished Reformation.” Other presenters include Joy Ann McDougall (Candler), Jennifer Ayres (Candler), Nancy Bedford (Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary), Reggie Williams (McCormick Theological Seminary), Raphael G. Warnock (Ebenezer Baptist Church), Charles Mathewes (University of Virginia), Joshua Ralston (University of Edinburgh), Gerald Liu (Drew Theological School), Reinerio Arce-Valentín (Matanzas Theological Seminary), Rachelle Renee Green (Emory University), and Hilda P. Koster (Concordia College).

From the event website:

Candler School of Theology at Emory University will host world-renowned theologian Jürgen Moltmann for a two-day conference on Wednesday and Thursday, October 19-20, 2016. Panelists will explore the impact and influence of Moltmann’s work on issues of contemporary theology, the contemporary church, and the contemporary world, with a closing response from Moltmann.

As I learn more details about the conference I will update this post.
