New Academy Series: Beginning Friday, October 17, @ 7:30 p.m. Prof. Ken Samples (pictured) will begin a six week series entitled, "If I Had Lunch with St. Augustine." Here's the synopsis for the course:
The last and greatest of the men revered as the “Church Fathers” was Augustine of Hippo or “St. Augustine” (A.D. 354-430). Though Christianity has produced many prominent thinkers during the past two millennia, Augustine may be the most influential Christian thinker of all time outside of the New Testament. His significant influence, especially on Western Christianity, is directly tied to his profound work as a theologian, philosopher, apologist, and church bishop. If you had lunch with the bishop, what would you ask him? What would you want to know about a man who was a great sinner who became a great saint?
Ken's first lecture is entitled, "Augustine’s Intellectual & Spiritual Pilgrimage."
