“Jesus in a Pluralistic Age”

Braswell World Religions and Global Cultures Center at Campbell University Divinity School in Buies Creek, North Carolina will hold the first international conference on religious diversity on July 26 and 27 this year.  The theme of our conference is “Jesus in a Pluralistic Age.”

Keynote speakers include Dr. Peter Phan, Ellacuria Professor of Catholic Social Thought at Georgetown University, with his address titled, “Jesus the Paradigmatic Migrant: Theological Implications for Our Pluralistic Age,” and Dr. Leo Lefebure, Matteo Ricci Chair and Professor of Theology at Georgetown University. 

Respected Christian and non-Christian leaders and scholars in North Carolina and around the world will participate at the conference as speakers, and members of panel discussions and symposia.  The conference will nurture a spirit of tolerance and mutual understanding among devotees of different faith traditions.

The life and ministry of Jesus transcend religious division, and his message of peace and love remains central to what all religions are trying to proclaim. The belief in one God and his vision of eternal peace have inspired all humanity from every faith tradition.   This conference will enhance our knowledge of Jesus and his message of peace and love in the world.

Special Guests will include: Local Christian, Jewish, and Muslim clergy,  Dr. George Braswell, Dr. Peter Phan and Dr. Leo Lefebure of Georgetown University, and Steven Porter, Coordinator of Global Missions for The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.
