Acton University 2017: June 20 – 23

FND Christian Anthropology

Session 1: Wednesday, June 15, 2016 - 9:00am - 10:15am

Draws on Scripture, patristic sources, and natural law to ground the Christian vision of virtuous liberty in the idea of “freedom for excellence”, contrasting it with the alternative of “freedom of indifference”. Outlines the concrete implications of these different understandings of human freedom. Required course for those who have not previously attended a Toward a Free and Virtuous Society conference or Acton University.
