ORU Spring Christian Worldview Lectures to Feature J. Budziszewski and Focus on Human Sexuality

Oral Roberts University will be hosting the Spring Christian Worldview Lectures March 25 and 26, 2010 in Zoppelt Auditorium. J. Budzisewski will be presenting a three-part series called "Right Reason About Human Sexuality: Making Sense of the Creational Design."

Budziszewski received his Ph.D. from Yale in 1981, and is a professor in the departments of Government and Philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin. Budziszewski is an ethical and political philosopher. He is also a nationally-known authority on the tradition of Natural Law, which is germane to intelligent design because natural teleology is at heart a design concept. He is the author of numerous books, including the best-selling How to Stay Christian in College, Written on the Heart: The Case for Natural Law, and What We Can't Not Know.

The session "Right Reason" will be held on Thursday, March 25 at 7 p.m. The session "Right Reason and Sex" will be held on Friday, March 26 at 1:30 p.m. The session "Right Reason, Sex and Dynamite" will be held on Friday, March 26 at 3:30 p.m.

The lecture series is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Professor Chris Martin at 918.488.3858 or by email at chmartin@oru.edu.
