On Thursday, November 11 at 11:45 AM CT, United will be hosting a book event celebrating the paperback release of Dr. Wheeler’s Religion Within the Limits of History Alone. Join us on campus or via livestream for a discussion and Q&A with Dr. Wheeler and special guest Dr. Sheila Greeve Davaney. United Dean Kyle Roberts and Rev. Andrea Johnson (’17) will also offer responses to the book. They will discuss the pragmatic historicism Dr. Wheeler advances in his book: a historicism which takes religion seriously as part of a changing, messy, temporal, fragile, diverse, and vibrant world. This pragmatic historicism invites us to reconstruct our theologies for our time and place.
