• Christian Theology and the Bible is a section of the Society of Biblical Literature. Our task is to explore the intersection between the disciplines of Christian Theology and Biblical Studies. Does or can such an intersection exist? What then could be or would be theological exegesis? What is its relation to religious communities, the history of interpretation, historical theology, history of confession and doctrine, so-called Higher Criticism, etc.?

The 2009 conference of the Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology

Vatican II: Its Continuing Challenge


to All Churches


An Ecumenical Conference for Clergy and Laity

Sponsored by the
Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology
in cooperation with the
Pope John Paul II Cultural Center

and held at the

Pope John Paul II Cultural Center
Washington, DC

Monday evening, June 8, 2009
through
Wednesday noon, June 10, 2009

The Second Vatican Council was a milestone for the Churches, Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant. The 50th anniversary of the calling of the Council is an opportunity to reflect on the challenges that Vatican II still presents to the churches. What promises remain unfulfilled? What paths from Vatican II have proven to be dead ends? What possibilities remain unexplored? The 2009 conference of the Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology will focus on these questions.

The keynote address will be given by George Lindbeck, an official observer at all four sessions of the Council for the Lutheran World Federation and one of the leading theologians of our time. Other presentations will focus on the continuing significance of Vatican II for such topics as ethics, ministry, worship, ecclesiology, justification, and ecumenism; speakers will represent a variety of traditions.

The Center is pleased to hold this conference in cooperation with the Pope John Paul II Cultural Center, close to the Catholic University of America, in Washington, DC.
