Pic _news _Dr _Charles _CampbellSaint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology, St. Meinrad, IN, will present the 23rd annual John S. and Virginia Marten Lecture in Homiletics on Tuesday, October 1, at 7 p.m. Central Time. The lecture will be given in the conference room on the fifth floor of St. Bede Hall, on the Saint Meinrad campus.

This year's lecturer is Dr. Charles Campbell, professor of homiletics at Duke University. The lecture is titled "Preaching and Apocalyptic Imagination." Focusing on Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians, Campbell will explore the character of preaching at the threshold of the old age and the new. He will discuss both theological dimensions of apocalyptic imagination and practical implications for preaching.

He will also conduct a workshop on Wednesday, October 2, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Central Time in the Flexible Conference Room, located on the fourth floor of Newman Hall.

Campbell earned a doctorate in theology and ethics from Duke University in 1993. He has been professor of homiletics there since 2009. Previously, he was the Peter Marshall Professor of Homiletics from 2004-2008 at Columbia Theological Seminary, where he had taught since 1991.

His publications include Preaching Fools: The Gospel as a Rhetoric of Folly (with Johan Cilliers, 2012); The Word Before the Powers: An Ethic of Preaching (2002); The Word on the Street: Performing the Scriptures in the Urban Context (with Stanley P. Saunders, 2000); and Preaching Jesus: New Directions for Homiletics in Hans Frei's Postliberal Theology (1997).

He is past president of the Academy of Homiletics.
