Many thanks to everyone who contacted me with suggestions on who to invite to speak at UTC as part of the LeRoy Martin Distinguished Lecture Series.
I hope to invite some of the following professors, who others have identified as excellent scholars and good public speakers:
R. Marie Griffith
James Davidson Hunter
Martin E. Marty
N. T. Wright
If you have any additional names to add to this list, please contact me. Ideally, I would like to bring in as many religious scholars (broadly defined) as possible over the next two years (or, as long as the lecture series is in existence).
