The James Luther Adams Foundation announces the fourteenth annual James Luther Adams Forum on Religion and Society. The lecture will be given this year by the well-known Christian ethicist Don S. Browning, the Alexander Campbell Professor Emeritus of Ethics and the Social Sciences at the University of Chicago Divinity School. The title of his lecture is, “Religion and Civil Society in James Luther Adams, Reformed Theology, and Catholicism.” Professor Browning was a long-time friend of Adams going back to his Chicago and Harvard days. He is also well-known for his relating Christian ethics to pastoral counseling. The Rev.
