Description

This webinar, which is open to the public, will feature St. Thomas’ professor of engineering, John Abraham, and Luther Seminary’s professor of systematic theology, Alan Padgett. Professor Abraham has often spoken on issues of climate; Professor Padgett has just co-edited a book on Eco-Theology. There will be time for Q&A. Registration is required, but the event is free and open to faculty, students, and the wider public.

Jeff Jalkio, professor of physics and electrical engineering at UST, will be the moderator. “What is Eco-Theology and What Does It Matter?” with Alan Padgett Alan G. Padgett (D.Phil., Oxford) is a theologian, philosopher, ordained minister, and prolific author who has lectured in many countries. With a life-long interest in physical sciences, he works at the intersection of theology, philosophy, biblical studies and religion-and-science. He is particularly known for his model of the mutuality of theology and the sciences, for his ethical-exegetical study of gender roles in the New Testament, and in philosophical theology for his new theory of divine eternity called “relative timelessness.” He is professor of systematic theology at Luther Seminary in Minnesota, where he also coordinates the Methodist House of Studies. His most recent work is Eco-Theology: A Christian Conversation (Eerdmans, 2020), co-edited with Kiara Jorgensen. He lives with his wife and two friends in a rural area of the St. Croix Valley, along the WI-MN border.

“This isn’t the climate your grandparents grew up with” with John Abraham John Abraham is a professor at the University of St. Thomas where he studies climate change. His recent research on global warming has been covered by major news outlets including CNN, BBC, NY Times Fox News, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, The Guardian, Al Jazeera, and others. In addition to his work on climate change, Dr. Abraham has co-invented technology to provide clean drinking water to impoverished communities around the world, and he has installed solar power in villages in Africa.
