What is the Oden Symposium?
Thomas C. Oden was a remarkable scholar and teacher whose long and varied life touched many areas of theology and spirituality. He made lasting contributions to Christian theology and World Christianity. Tom’s self-described mission was, in his words, “to begin to prepare the postmodern Christian community for its third millennium by returning again to the careful study and respectful following of the central tradition of classical Christianity.”
In his honor, the Center for Early African Christianity and Institute of Classical Christianity Studies will host a symposium commemorating Tom's legacy on Friday and Saturday, November 9-10, 2018. The Rediscovery of the City of God: A Symposium in Honor of Thomas C. Oden. In this two-day symposium scholars, pastors, international church leaders will explore the following themes in relation to Thomas Oden’s legacy: Classical Christianity, Ancient Christianity, spiritual renewal, and building bridges within the historic communities of faith. You are cordially invited to attend.
