Thank you to Professor Herb Basser for pointing out this provocative perspective on the meaning and value of modern university education.
This is a lecture by Bishop William Willimon in the J.M. Synge Theatre Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, 15 February 2011. He traces some of the development of the modern world, and what that has meant for how we understand Jesus. It is typically Willimon, an accessible mix of story, history, philosophy and theology.
