SAINT AUGUSTINE – Philip Jenkins, Ph.D., presents “Climate Catastrophe and Faith, How Changes in Climate Drive Religious Revolutions” Jan. 30 at 7 p.m. in the Lewis Auditorium on Flagler College’s campus as part of the Cecile and Gene Usdin, Judeo-Christian Lecture Series. The event is free and open to the public.
A Distinguished Professor of History at Baylor University, Jenkins is also the Co-Director for the Program on Historical Studies of Religion in the Institute for Studies of Religion. He received his history doctorate from Cambridge University where he began studying the intersection of crime, sociology and religion. Since then, Jenkins has become a renowned scholar on religion and an international expert on terrorism. His current interests include the study of global Christianity and post-1970 United States history. He is the author of 24 books, which include these themes.
The Cecile & Gene Usdin Judeo-Christian Lecture Series is made possible through a generous endowed gift to Flagler College from Gene Usdin, M.D., a former president of the American Psychiatric Association and a clinical professor of psychiatry at Louisiana State University School of Medicine. His love of St. Augustine inspired him to give back to the community by fostering dialogue about Jewish and Christian principles.
