Aperture: Third Wednesdays continues this month with guest speaker Dr. Charles Campbell on the topic of “Apocalyptic Imagination and the Christian Life.”
Apocalpytic is often thought of as bizarre literature about the end of the world, as in the book of Revelation. Recent biblical scholarship has moved beyond this narrow understanding to view apocalyptic as a form of imagination that permeates much of the New Testament. We will discuss this apocalypytic imagination and its implications for the Christian life in our time.
Dr. Campbell is a professor of homiletics at Duke Divinity School. His work focuses on the biblical, theological, and ethical dimensions of preaching. He is currently writing a theological commentary on First Corinthians.
