The Lecture Series of
United Church of Christ, in collaboration with
the Turner Legacy Committee, presents
Miroslav Volf serves as Director of the Yale Center for Faith & Culture and Henry B.
Wright Professor of Theology at Yale University Divinity School. Miroslav teaches theology at Yale University. In addition to
Yale’s new Faith and Globalization Course that he co-teaches with former Prime Minister Tony Blair, Professor Volf leads courses
on systematic theology, Luther and Schleiermacher, and contemporary conceptions of God. A native of Croatia, he has forged a
theology of forgiveness and nonviolence in the face of violence experienced in Croatia and Serbia in the 1990s. His research spans
topics such as human work, the church, the Trinity, violence, reconciliation, giftgiving, and memory of wrongs. Miroslav has argued
in many contexts for Christian faith to be seen not as an additive to help us cope with this or that problem, but as a way of life.
Faith, he argues, matters in all spheres of life.
