Dr. Brent Waters

Dead Reckoning:  Eschatology and Ethics

This lecture charts a trajectory for the Christian moral life between what Dr. Waters calls “the poles of anticipatory remembrance and imaginative restlessness.”

Influenced by pastoral theologian and faculty colleague Dr. David Hogue and his book, Remembering the Future, Imagining the Past, Waters examines the relationship between eschatology and ethics by likening the Christian moral life to the ancient mariners and early pilots who, when unequipped with charts and instrumentation, employed what is known as “dead reckoning.”

Dr. James Poling
The Ambiguity of God and Humans

In his retirement lecture, Poling explores the concept of ambiguity as a helpful concept for human religious life. In Jesus’s life, the cross and nonviolence are signs that show us the connections between human ambiguity and God’s ambiguity. This lecture is drawn from his recent book: Rethinking Faith: A Constructive Practical Theology (Fortress Press, 2011).
