An Introduction to the Thinking of Miroslav Volf

May 29, 2015

While visiting the University of Fribourg earlier this month, Dr. Matthew Croasmun delivered a lecture titled Christ and Human Flourishing: An Introduction to the Thinking of Miroslav Volf

The lecture narrativized the scope and direction of Professor Volf’s past academic accomplishments, particularly in light of his current theological undertaking regarding questions of human flourishing. Dr. Croasmun traced Volf’s thought in three roughly chronological movements: first, the Theology of Work and of Trinity; second, the Theology of Reconciliation; and third, Public Theology. Croasmun then showed how themes running throughout Professor Volf’s career culminate in, and are in some ways re-illuminated by, his latest work on human flourishing.
