'Jesus: Magician or Healer?' topic of Oct. 24 talk by James Carroll

James Carroll

How did Jesus come to be regarded as divine, and what is the content of that doctrine today? Can we embrace miracle, prayer and resurrection without betraying rational and critical belief?

Award-winning author, Boston Globe columnist and former Catholic priest James Carroll will discuss these questions in "Jesus: Magician or Healer?" on Monday, Oct. 24. The lecture begins at 7 p.m. in Glenn Memorial Auditorium.

The following day, on Oct. 25, Carroll will participate in a luncheon conversation from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at Miller-Ward Alumni House to discuss the prior evening's lecture topic in a smaller group setting.

Carroll will be speaking in his capacity as the 2011 McDonald Family Chair on the Life and Teachings of Jesus and their Impact on Culture at Candler School of Theology. The final lecture in Carroll's fall series, "Jesus Against Himself: From Itinerant Galilean to Christ of God and Back Again" is set for Monday, Nov. 14, on the topic of "Jesus: An Undiscovered Faith."

Admission is free for the lecture series, but registration is requested. To register for the lectures, go to, navigate to the date of the event and click "Sign Up."

 Cost is $30 for each luncheon. Registration is required and seating is limited.
