This first public lecture as Lindaman Endowed Chair shall center on the topics of religious freedom and the reign of God, which at first appear to be contradictory ideas. How can the human person be truly free while also being confined to obedience to God’s will and design for Creation? The talk will explore Christian understandings of the reign of God in a world seemingly torn apart by sectarianism and religious difference, focusing on the historical legacy of China vis-à-vis religious freedom and the putative separation of Church and State.
