Speaking God: The Death & Rebirth of Sacred Speech

Posted on February 4, 2021 by PLT Staff

Lecture given by award-winning religion, politics, and culture writer Jonathan Merritt at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA (October 18, 2018). Many of us struggle to talk about faith, discovering that old religious words like “sin,” “gospel,” and “grace” fail to connect in today’s swiftly changing culture. Merritt’s lecture, which addresses this dilemma, was sponsored by the Project on Lived Theology, the Department of Religious Studies, and Theological Horizons.
