Renowned Yale Professor Speaks About A Meaningful Life


A Yale University theology professor and former White House advisor will speak at 7 p.m. Nov. 13 in the Berry College Krannert Ballroom.

Miroslav Volf, the founder and director of Yale Center for Faith and Culture, will explore  the question: “What is a life worth living?” The event is open to the public and free of charge.

Volf is a highly respected Croatian theologian and has been named “one of the most celebrated theologians of our day” by the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams.

He has written 17 books, and his book “Exclusion and Embrace” won the Grawemeyer Award in Religion. He served as an advisor to the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships and taught a Yale course alongside Tony Blair, a former British Prime Minister.

Volf, the Henry B. Wright Professor of Systematic Theology at the Yale University Divinity School, earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from the Evangelical Theological Faculty in Croatia before receiving his Master of Arts from Fuller Theological Seminary and his doctorate in theology from the University of Tübingen, Germany.

Volf’s lecture is part of the Berry Office of the Chaplain’s Lumen Lecture Series which invites guest speakers to discuss the Christian faith. For more information about the Office of the Chaplain at Berry College please visit
