Associate Professor of Theology at Meadville Lombard Theological School, Chicago
Presented on March 18, 2014 at Meadville Lombard Theological School, Chicago
Michael Hogue spoke on “Towards a Deeper Democracy: James Luther Adams and the Aesthetics of Solidarity.” In the spirit of James Luther Adams, he critically compares American philosophies of community and advances the idea of aesthetic solidarities as a model for the culturing of deep democracy in a postsecular, pluralistic society. American political theology is one of his special areas of thought and publication.
Michael received the John Templeton Award for Theological Promise.
