Books & Bridges: Featuring Brian Birch
Apr 27, 2017, 7:00 pm
Can faith and reason be reconciled? Brian Birch, philosophy professor at Utah Valley University, will lead a discussion on the age-old question posed by early Christian thinker Tertullian — “What Hath Athens to do with Jerusalem?” Brian Birch is director of the Religious Studies Program and director of the Center for the Study of Ethics at Utah Valley University. He specializes in comparative theology and the ethical dimensions of religious diversity.
Books and Bridges is a community institute of ideas and conversation. Our mission is to facilitate discussion on the best of human thought. We explore the wisdoms of the world and apply them to modern life. We have no political, religious or ideological affiliation. In a society divided by uncivil discourse, the beauty of the humanities—novels, history, philosophy, poetry, ethics and epics—lifts us to our better angels. In our busy world we need space for friends and fellow learners to do a little more heart-to-heart and mind-to-mind.
This event is made possible with support from Books & Bridges, Weller Book Works, and Utah Humanities.
