Event description

Description

The Center for Faith and Culture invites you to hear Dr. Brent Waters for our annual Drummond Bush Lecture on Tuesday, October 23rd at 7:00pm in the Center for Faith and Culture Seminar Room. Dr. Waters will be lecturing on Disembodied Bioethics: The Incarnation, Embodiment, and Late Modern Medicine.

The Drummond-Bush Lecture was established in 2011 and made possible by a generous gift from Mrs. Drummond in memory of her late husband Dr. Lewis Drummond, fourth president of Southeastern Seminary. This lectureship also honors Dr. L. Russ Bush who at the time of his death was professor of Philosophy at Southeastern Seminary and director of the L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture. The main purpose of this lecture series is to address apologetic and cultural issues related to the life and ministry of the Church.

Brent Waters, D.Phil., is the Jerre and Mary Joy Professor of Christian Social Ethics, and Director of the Jerre L. and Mary Joy Stead Center for Ethics and Values at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, Evanston, Illinois. He is the author of Just Capitalism: A Christian Ethic of Globalization, Christian Moral Theology in the Emerging Technoculture: From Posthuman Back to Human, This Mortal Flesh: Incarnation and Bioethics, The Family in Christian Social and Political Thought, From Human to Posthuman: Christian Theology and Technology in a Postmodern World, Reproductive Technology: Towards a Theology of Procreative Stewardship, Dying and Death: A Resource for Christian Reflection, and Pastoral Genetics: Theology and Care at the Beginning of Life (with co-author Ronald Cole-Turner), and editor of Christology and Ethics (with co-editor F. LeRon Shults), and God and the Embryo: Religious Voices on Stem Cells and Cloning (with co-editor Ronald Cole-Turner). Waters has also written numerous articles and lectured extensively on the relationship among theology, ethics and technology. He was the recipient of the Paul Ramsey Award for Excellence in Bioethics in 2016. Waters has served previously as the Director of the Center for Business, Religion and Public Life, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. He is a graduate of the University of Redlands (B.A.), School of Theology at Claremont (M.Div., D.Min.), and the University of Oxford (D.Phil.).
