Baylor’s Institute for Studies of Religion will host a symposium on World Christianity. The focus of the symposium will be on the role of Christianity in Brazil, Russia, India and China, exploring questions of Christianity’s role in economic development, Christianity as a minority, its relation with other religions, and the impact of demographic patterns on Christianity. The symposium is a one-day event and will take place Monday, October 11th at Baylor. At 10:30am there will be a panel discussion by Paul C. Freston of Laurier University, Paul Froese of Baylor University, Virginia Garrard-Burnett of University of Texas, and Robert Woodberry of University of Texas. The panel will take place in the Armstrong Browning Library Classroom. At 2:30pm Philip Jenkins of Penn State University and Baylor University will make a presentation in Draper 106.
I will be there and hope to see you there as well.
