Barbara Rossing: Niebuhr Lecture at Elmhurst College

October 18, 2012

Revelation, the book of the Bible frequently cited as foretelling the end of the world and describing why true believers should be ready to depart for heaven to avoid Armageddon, is actually a guide to establishing paradise here on Earth, said noted author and New Testament scholar Barbara R. Rossing during an October 18 presentation at Elmhurst College.

Above: The 2012 Niebuhr Lecture by Dr. Barbara Rossing follows brief introductory remarks by Dr. S. Alan Ray, president of Elmhurst College, and Dr. Mladen Turk, assistant professor, Religious Studies Department, Elmhurst College.

The Niebuhr Lecture, which was launched in the early 1960s, honors two Elmhurst College alumni: Reinhold Niebuhr, Class of 1910, and his brother, H. Richard, who graduated in 1912 and served as president of the College in the 1920s. The Niebuhr brothers are considered to be among the foremost American theologians of the 20th century.
