“The Crucifixion and the Christian Life”
Abbot Peter Eberle, former abbot of Mount Angel Abbey, and presently a Formation Director and professor of Introductory Moral Theology at Mount Angel Seminary, will present the 2019 Winter/Spring Christian in the World Lectures, which will be devoted to “The Crucifixion and the Christian Life.” The series will follow the pattern of recent lecture series inasmuch as Abbot Peter will present all four lectures.
Session 1 – The Centrality, Scandal, Horror, and Primacy of the Cross
Session 2 – Why the Cross? An Inquiry
Session 3 – Why the Cross? The Cross and Christ the Victor
Session 4 – Why the Cross? The Cross, Christ, and the Exodus*
