In their lectures delivered at the 2015 Fuller Forum, Walter Brueggemann, renowned author and Old Testament scholar, presented the law of Yahweh not as static and totalizing but as an ongoing conversation between God and God’s people; Cameron Lee, professor of marriage and family studies, explained how neighborliness has developmental roots in early family relationships, and how this has implications for the ministry and life of the church; and Michael McBride, pastor of The Way Christian Center, talked about the role the church has to advocate for and participate in movements of racial justice, particularly by redeeming broken systems.
The 2015 Fuller Forum explored the themes of justice, grace, and law and how each shapes our understanding of the church’s relationship with God and the church’s ministry in the world. Joined by Fuller scholars and other guests, renowned Old Testament scholar Walter Brueggemann, featured as the conference’s keynote speaker. Author of over a hundred books, he is the William Marcellus McPheeters Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary.
