BioLogos Advisor Stan Rosenberg will present “Augustine’s Vision for Christians and Society: A Reset for Fraught Times?” on October 5, 2020. This virtual event is free, but registration is required.
“Injustice and unrest proliferate. Divided society crumbles amid unsolvable challenges. Alienation and fear perennially prosper…again. In 410 AD, Romans faced what to them was the unthinkable when Goths sacked their ‘eternal city’. Turmoil abounded — pagans blamed Christians for their ‘Christian times’. Christians roiled by dismay asked why God had allowed catastrophe. Both believed Rome to be exceptional. Augustine waded into this angst and toxic mix with his City of God. It challenged the mythic ideas and misplaced loyalties of both the pagans and the Christians, offering a vision of society that might prove sage in our own fraught times.”
