The Ebor Lectures

The Ebor Lectures are a response to the growing need for theology to interact with public issues in contemporary society. This series of lectures aims to promote public conversation and relate faith to public concerns including politics, economics, contemporary culture, religion and spirituality. It is also an ecumenical project that seeks to exchange insights between academic and religious traditions and to build bridges between the church and other religious groups.
