    Lucy Pick ~ Pilgrimage ~ Seminary Co-op Bookstore
    Seminary Co-op Bookstore, Sunday, October 26 at 3pm
    Please join us in welcoming Lucy Pick as she reads from and discusses her first novel, Pilgrimage. Pilgrimage is a story about the Middle Ages that explores betrayal, friendship, illness, miracles, healing, and redemption on the road to Compostela. Lucy Pick is a historian of medieval religious thought and practice and teaches at the University of Chicago Divinity School. Her current research and teaching interests include the relationships between gender and religion, connections between historical writing and theology, the development of monastic thought and practice, reading and writing as spiritual exercises, and the ways in which religion shapes lives through ritual. More about Pilgrimage: For the rest of twelfth-century Europe, Spain was a far-off and exotic place, home to the holy site of Compostela, shrine of Saint James. The saint’s tomb drew a perpetual wave of pilgrims, coming for adventure, or seeking a miracle from the saint. Pilgrimage is the story of one of those pilgrims. The last thing Gebirga of Flanders remembers seeing is the argument between her parents that ended in her mother’s death. In the years since, she has learned to negotiate her family’s castle of Gistel as a blind woman but everyone assumes that one day her home will be the convent founded in her mother’s honor. An accidental encounter offers another path, and Gebirga flees her callous family with a pack of pilgrims that includes a count’s daughter bound for marriage, two clerics writing a guidebook, and a mysterious messenger with an unknown agenda, all headed along the pilgrimage road to Compostela. The journey takes Gebirga from her home on the edge of the North Sea across the kingdoms of France and into the Iberian Peninsula, where her mission to escort a young noblewoman becomes a dangerous adventure involving power-hungry kings and queens and even the Roman Pope. But can a blind woman navigate the shoals of international politics? To find a place where she can belong, Gebirga must learn there are other ways of seeing the truth than with her eyes.

    Monday, October 27th, 5:30 PM Seminary Co-op Bookstore 5751 S. Woodlawn Avenue Phone: 773.752.4381 events@semcoop.com

    Co-sponsored with CEERES | The Center for East European and Russian/Eurasian Studies at the UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO

    Give War and Peace a chance takes readers on a journey through War and Peace that reframes their very understanding of what it means to live through troubled times and survive them. Touching on a broad range of topics, from courage to romance, parenting to death, Kaufman demonstrates how Tolstoy’s wisdom can help us live fuller, more meaningful lives. The ideal companion to War and Peace, this book will also be enjoyable to those who have never read a word of Tolstoy, making that masterpiece more approachable, relevant, and fun.

    Andrew D. Kaufman, internationally recognized Russian literature scholar at the University of Virginia, is the author of Understanding Tolstoy and coauthor of Russian for Dummies. An award-winning teacher of Russian language, literature, and culture, he is a featured Tolstoy expert on Oprah.com and is frequently invited to discuss Russian literature and culture on national and international television and radio programs.

    Reggie L. Williams ~ Bonhoeffer's Black Jesus: Harlem Renaissance Theology and an Ethic of Resistance ~ Seminary Co-op Bookstore
    Seminary Co-op Bookstore, Tuesday, October 28 at 6pm
    Tuesday, October 28th, 6 PM Seminary Co-op Bookstore 5751 S. Woodlawn Avenue Phone: 773.752.4381 events@semcoop.com

    In Bonhoeffer’s Black Jesus author Reggie L. Williams follows Dietrich Bonhoeffer as he defies Hitler's Germany with Harlem’s black Jesus. The Christology Bonhoeffer learned in Harlem’s churches featured a black Christ who suffered with African Americans in their struggle against systemic injustice and racial violence—and then resisted. In the pews of the Abyssinian Baptist Church, under the leadership of Adam Clayton Powell, Sr., Bonhoeffer absorbed the Christianity of the Harlem Renaissance. This Christianity included a Jesus who stands with the oppressed rather than joins the oppressors and a theology that challenges the way God can be used to underwrite a union of race and religion.

    Reggie L. Williams is Assistant Professor of Christian Ethics at McCormick Theological Seminary. He is a member of the International Dietrich Bonhoeffer Society, as well as the Society for the Study of Black Religion, and a founding member of the Society for the Study of Race, Ethnicity and Religion.

    Terrence J. Rynne ~ Jesus Christ, Peacemaker: A New Theology of Peace ~ Seminary Co-op Bookstore
    Seminary Co-op Bookstore, Wednesday, October 29 at 6pm
    On Wednesday, October 29th at 6pm, the Seminary Cooperative Bookstore in Hyde Park, in conjunction with the Catholic Theological Union and the other seminaries on the University of Chicago campus, will sponsor "Peacemaking Not Pacifism: A New Paradigm." This public conversation will feature Terrence J. Rynne, author of the recently published book, Jesus Christ, Peacemaker: A New Theology of Peace, and Father Bill Kenneally, a well-known priest in the Archdiocese of Chicago—the former beloved pastor of St. Gertude's parish on Chicago’s North Side who is currently serving as a chaplain to the Sisters of Mercy.

    Terrence Rynne’s earlier book Gandhi and Jesus: The Saving Power of Nonviolence was well received in 2008. In Jesus Christ, Peacemaker, Terry Rynne argues that because of the theory of justifiable war, which became the one and only stance of the Church on war and violence, we lost the amazing, soul-sized teaching of Jesus. We lost the dynamic ethic that changed the world--that stood against war and violence but more importantly, attacked the underlying causes of war and violence and fashioned full-blown peace.
