Braaten on “The Search for the Real Jesus.”

March 22, 2011

I will be posting here and on our Facebook page updates on the speakers at the Pro Ecclesia conference, Who Do You Say That I Am? Proclaiming and Following Jesus Today.”
The opening presentation at the conference will be by Carl Braaten, on “The Search for the Real Jesus.” He will look comprehensively at the discussions of Jesus in recent theology and New Testaments studies and draw what we can guess will be his usual sharp conclusions. It should be a good opening to the conference.
Braaten needs little introduction to those who find their way to this page. He is one of the best known Lutheran theologians of recent years, with a long list of publications. For many years he taught at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. This presentation will give a taste of his forthcoming book “Who is Jesus?”. Braaten was one of the founders of the Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology and we are proud to have him lead off the conference.
