From February 25-27, 2009, I have the privilege of blogging Union University’s “Making Men Moral” conference in honor of conservative public intellectual Robbie George. I can’t tell you how excited I am to live-blog this event in Jackson, TN, which features such conservative and Christian all-stars as George, Hadley Arkes, Jean Belke Elshtain, Russ Moore, and Greg Thornbury.
Here’s the conference purpose:
“Times change, but the challenge of applying moral principles to contemporary politics remains. Join several prominent thinkers as we wrestle with how to promote a healthy moral ecology in an uncertain age.
This conference commemorates the 15th anniversary of Making Men Moral by Robert George.”
The conference is less than a month away; here’s where to register. It’s $75 for what looks like the year’s preeminent conference on the subject of Christianity and the public square. My posts will feature less dictation and more interaction, a format that I think will work well with a lineup of this horsepower.
Please do join us for the conference in late February; if you can’t, please come back to this blog in several weeks’ time for the live-blogging. I’m really looking forward to it and am thankful for schools like Union that have the vision and resources necessary to put on such a stimulating and constructive conference.
