For the Love of Paradise: How New Scholarship Can Help in an Age of Global Climate Change

Join us for an enlightening online event with scholars Rita Nakashima Brock and Rebecca Ann Parker that explores the crucial topic of global climate change. Discover how new scholarship is shaping our understanding of this urgent issue and uncover ways we can contribute to a sustainable future. Prepare to be inspired by Drs. Brock and Parker. Together, let's make a difference and protect our beloved paradise!

Springing from their ground-breaking work in Saving Paradise: How Christianity Traded Love of This World for Crucifixion and Empire, Brock and Parker will explore how their research on early Christianity’s ethic of love for this world and the interdependence of all life can contribute to a transformed Christian response to global climate change---one that does more than re-tread the goal of “building a better world.”

MEMBERS: Please note that this event is FREE to members. To RSVP, please go into the Westar Public Square and click on the "Westar Events" tab. Once inside, please RSVP for the webinars you'd like to attend.
