"Public Responsibility of Theology," America and the Future of Theology
Interdenominational Theological Center Audio Visual Collection
This audio recording consists of three different speakers discussing one major topic, the public responsibility of theology. The main speaker is Roger L. Shinn argues that theologians have a tendency to avoid speaking on important injustices such as segregation and violence. He goes on to call on theologians to stop giving the public a reason to resent theological participation. The next two speakers, Father Bernardin Patterson and Creighton Lacy follow Shinn’s lecture by giving criticism and analyzing his speech. Father Patterson takes the ministerial perspective while Lacy gives the academic side of the critique.
