Christendom College will welcome acclaimed Swedish theologian Dr. Mats Wahlberg to America for an exclusive lecture on Monday, May 23, at its graduate school campus in Alexandria, Va. The talk, titled “Revelation as Testimony: The Resurrection of Christ as Historical Fact,” will begin at 7:00 p.m., with a wine reception and book signing occurring prior to the talk at 6:30 p.m.
A convert from Lutheranism, Wahlberg holds a Ph.D. in religious studies from Umeå Universitet in Sweden, and a Ph.D. in systematic theology from Stellenbosch University in South Africa. He is currently an associate professor of systematic theology at Umeå, and is the author of two books and several articles in journals such as First Things, Nova et Vetera, and the International Journal of Systematic Theology.
His latest work, Revelation as Testimony, has received widespread acclaim from First Things, Catholic Library World, and from professors at Duke University and Yale, with professor Nicholas Wolterstorff of Yale calling it a “’game-changer.’”
Wahlberg’s presentation will be of special concern to those engaged in apologetics as well as to anyone who thinks about the challenges of the Christian faith in a climate of secularism and cultural pluralism. The talk will also be of interest to those seeking to better understand the story of modern theology and where to go from there.
Christendom’s graduate school is located at 4407 Sano Street, Alexandria, Va. Space is limited at the event, and all are encouraged to RSVP to Virginia Norris, administrative assistant to the dean at Christendom’s Graduate School, at 703-658-4304 or firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, May 16 to reserve a seat.
