SRC Forum Conversation with Paul Farmer


Tuesday, February 11, 2014, 7:00pm to 8:30pm


First Church in Cambridge, 11 Garden Street, Cambridge, MA

Paul Farmer comes to HDS to discuss his new book, In the Company of the Poor, written with Gustavo Gutierrez and published in November 2013. Representing several decades of friendship and collaboration between Dr. Farmer and Father Gutierrez, the book locates considerable common ground between the two thinker's respective careers in global health and liberation theology. This event will explore the theological roots of Christianity's preferential option for the poor and the practical challenges of implementing such a worldview.

Dr. Farmer will discuss these questions with Professor David Carrasco. MDiv candidate Lauren Taylor will moderate.

This event is sponsored by the Science Religion and Culture Program at Harvard Divinity School.
