Bud Kilsby-Louis Valla Lecture on Progressive Religious Scholarship



The Bud Kilsby-Louis Valla Lecture
on Progressive Religious Scholarship

The Importance of Interfaith Dialogue

Saturday, February 19, 2011   9 am – 12 pm


Keynote Speaker Dr. Jerry Campbell
President, Claremont School of Theology
Discussing The University Project         


“The University Project represents the conviction that religion is not a competitive sport, that religion is not the tool of empire, and that religion is not a game of winner take all. At least 21 of the world’s religions have articulated a version of the ethics of reciprocity. In Christianity it is known as the Golden Rule. Whatever it be called, the ethics of reciprocity is not compatible with religion as competition. It rather suggests religion as compassion, as a source for healing, as a foundation for repairing our conflict-ridden world.”

– From the 2010 CST Convocation Address
