An Interview with Peter Rollins by Dr. Van Dyke

Peter Rollins is coming to Grand Rapids! As he comes through town on his speaking tour, he will be stopping at McFadden’s for a pub night.

From his blog:

In contrast to the usual answers concerning what the Good News might be, Peter will present a radical and initially disturbing definition: you can’t be satisfied, life is difficult, and you don’t know the secret. Arguing that God has traditionally been thought of as a type of product that will make you whole, remove your suffering and give you the truth, he will contrast that with an approach to faith which invites us to embrace suffering, face up to our unknowing and fully accept the difficulties of existence.

He will also be stopping at Cornerstone University for an event sponsored by CUSP. Please join us for an interview with Rollins facilitated by Dr. Michael Van Dyke, Associate Professor of English at Cornerstone. Van Dyke is responsible for a lot of discussions regarding Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek, a thinker who has significantly influenced Rollins, especially his latest book, Insurrection.

Stay tuned for further details. We look forward to seeing you at this event.
