Graham Ward, Regius Professor of Divinity at Oxford University, on "Against Idolatry"

Description
In the first instalment of the Yale-NUS Comparative Religious Studies Speaker Series, Professor Ward will outline the sociology and psychology of radicalisation and critically examine the two theological bases of what he will call 'self-authenticating' religion, Scripture and the doctrine of revelation.

Among Professor Ward’s books are Cities of God (Routledge), Cultural Transformation and Religious Practice (CUP), True Religion (Blackwell), Christ and Culture (Blackwell), The Politics of Discipleship (Baker Academic) and Unbelievable (I.B.Tauris). Along with Michael Hoelzl, he is also the translator of two of Carl Schmitt’s works: Political Theology II (Polity) and Dictatorship (Polity). He edits three book series: Christian Theologians in Context (OUP), Illuminations (Blackwell) and Studies in Theology and Political Culture (Continuum). Currently he is engaged in a three-volume work entitled Ethical Life to be published by Oxford University Press. The first volume How The Light Gets In was published in January this year.
