featured_divine_immanenceThrough a grant from the Analytic Theology Project of the Center for Philosophy of Religion at the University of Notre Dame, BTSR students and faculty have had the opportunity, along with faculty from Christopher Newport and Regent University, to discuss the topic of Divine Immanence with outstanding philosophers and theologians. Co-led by Dr. Elizabeth Newman (BTSR) and Dr. Ryan Byerly of Regent University, the group gathered in Chesapeake, VA on March 1 to hear Dr. Steve Harmon (Theology, Gardner-Webb) talk about divine immanence in the incarnation and Dr. Alex Pruss (Philosophy, Baylor) give attention to the Eucharist as an instance of special/local divine immanence. BTSR student participants include Tom Baynham, Meghan Byerly, Michael Gerace, Joseph Perdue and Rhon Williams.

The group will gather again on April 5 at BTSR, with guest lectures by David Schindler, the Edouard Cardinal Gagnon Professor of Fundamental Theology at the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family of The Catholic University of America, and Katherin Rogers, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Delaware.
