Lent Lecture: Taking Up the Cross - From Atonement for Sins to Birthing New Life


Wednesday, March 14, 2012 at 7:00 PM

Dominican University Priory Campus Auditorium 7200 W. Division St., River Forest, IL 60305 (see map)

Barbara E. Reid, OP, PhD,  professor of New Testament studies, vice president and academic dean of Catholic Theological Union, offers our annual lecture of the Lenten season. She will explore select New Testament texts and their differing theologies of the cross, with a view toward identifying those that can feed cycles of violence and victimization and those that can open liberating paths. Reid is the author of many books including Taking Up the Cross: New Testament Interpretations Through Latina and Feminist Eyes, Las Parábolas: Predicándolas y Viviéndolas, and Choosing the Better Part? Women in the Gospel of Luke. She writes the weekly column on “The Word” for America magazine, and  is at work on two new books on feminist interpretation of the Scriptures.

Admission is $10
