A Dialogue on Death: Atheism and Christianity

Tuesday, 3 April 2018, 7 – 8.30pm

Mercy Lecture Theatre, ACU Melbourne Campus, 115 Victoria Parade, Fitzroy

Death confronts us all. But what is death – and how do we live knowing that we will die?

Join us for a conversation as we consider a range of perspectives on these questions, in order to develop a dialogue between atheism and Christianity that can shed light on how all of us might think about our own mortality.

Our presenters are Denys Turner (Yale University and ACU), Mark Kelly (Western Sydney University), Robyn Whitaker (University of Divinity), and Jon Roffe (University of New South Wales).

This event is hosted by ACU’s Institute for Religion and Critical Inquiry.
