Dr. Wolterstorff has had a distinguished career as a scholar, professor and writer.

He has served as President of both the American Philosophical Association and the Society of Christian Philosophy.

Dr. Wolterstorff will give three lectures in the series on Love and Justice. These are entitled: "Agape in Contemporary Christian Ethics," "Agapism’s Difficulty with Justice" and "Justice-Alert Love."
