About the Lecture

After five centuries of division between brothers and sisters consecrated to Christ in Baptism, it has become clear that the pursuit of Christian unity requires not only frankness of theological discussion but a true and charitable desire to understand one another. 

In his many books, articles and lectures, Dr. Timothy George has been an exemplary contributor to this common effort, and Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary is honored by his presence to share his reflections and insights to mark this historical milestone.

Background on Presenter

Dr. Timothy George has been the dean of Beeson Divinity School of Samford University since its inception in 1988.  Trained in theology and church history at Harvard University, he is the author of more than twenty books, including Theology of the Reformers, John Calvin and the Church, and Is the Father of Jesus the God of Muhammad? 

He also serves as the general editor of the Reformation Commentary on Scripture, a twenty-eight volume series of sixteenth-century exegetical comment.  He serves on the editorial advisory boards of First Things, Christianity Today, and Books & Culture.  He is a life advisory trustee of Wheaton College.
