The Lecture Series of
University Congregational
United Church of Christ, in collaboration with
the Turner Legacy Committee, presents


Miroslav Volf

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.
