The Heritage Lecture Series seeks to expand the religious horizons of Westminster Presbyterian Church and the Greenville community by inviting guest lecturers to challenge and inspire us toward a deeper understanding of and renewed commitment to biblical teachings, our Judeo-Christian heritage and our responsibilities in the world.
On Sunday, November 3, we welcomed Diana Butler Bass to our pulpit as the 2013 speaker in our Heritage Lecture Series.
Butler Bass is an author, speaker, and independent scholar specializing in American religion and culture. She holds a Ph.D. in religious studies from Duke University and is the author of eight books, including Christianity After Religion: The End of Church and the Birth of a New Spiritual Awakening (2012), A People's History of Christianity: The Other Side of the Story (2009), and the bestselling Christianity for the Rest of Us: How the Neighborhood Church is Transforming the Faith (2006) which Publishers Weekly named as one of the best religion books of the year and was featured in a cover story in USA TODAY.
She has also taught subjects such as church history, American religious history, and history of Christian thought at numerous colleges, including the University of California at Santa Barbara, Macalester College, Rhodes College, and the Virginia Theological Seminary.
