A lecture taking place at Whitworth University April 17 will examine key questions, like “what do you want to become?” and “How do you go about living a life worth desiring?”

According to a press release, “It has always been difficult to live well, but today we face an unusually large number of powerful forces that work against human flourishing.”

In an effort to answer those questions, Bruner-Welch Professor of Theology Adam Neder will present, “Soren and Simone: What Two Eccentric Geniuses Can Teach Us About Living Well Today.”

Neder is the author of, “Theology as a Way of Life: On Teaching and Learning the Christian Faith and Participation in Christ: An Entry into Karl Barth’s Church Dogmatics.”

According to the press release, Søren Kierkegaard and Simone Weil were two of the most brilliant, important and idiosyncratic thinkers of the last 200 years. Their ideas will be discussed at the lecture.

The event will take place April 17, from 6-8 p.m. in the Beeksma Family Theology Center chapel sanctuary on the Whitworth campus.
