JACKSON, Tenn. – Sept. 27, 2011 – Matthew Lee Anderson, author of “Earthen Vessels: Why Our Bodies Matter to Our Faith,” will lecture at Union University Sept. 29.
Anderson is the founder of the Mere Orthodoxy blog and writes regularly for Christianity Today, First Things and The City. His lecture is entitled “The (Physical) Body in Evangelical Practice and Politics.”
“Matthew Anderson’s latest book reminds us that our bodies matter because God’s creation matters, and we do well as Christians to think hard about what it means to worship an incarnational God and the implications our bodies have for how we live,” said Micah Watson, director of Union’s Center for Politics and Religion, which is sponsoring the lecture. “We’re delighted to have him come to Union and look forward to a great conversation.”
The lecture will begin at 7 p.m. in room D-3 in the Penick Academic Complex. It is free and open to the public.
