The Montview Lectureship
In 1955 America was in the midst of a renewed interest in religion. Church membership and attendance were soaring. There was an intellectual renaissance in theology led by scholars such as Reinhold and Richard Niebuhr, Paul Tillich, Martin E. Marty, Harvey Cox and Robert McAfee Brown among others.
Montview Boulevard Presbyterian Church wanted to capture some of that spiritual and intellectual excitement for our community. Thus the idea for the Montview Lectureship was born with the intent of bringing outstanding national theologians to our community to enlighten and challenge people.
More recently, Montview has attracted some of the country’s finest theological minds including, John Shelby Spong, Cynthia Rigby, Marcus Borg, James Forbes of Riverside Church, NY, the Rev. Dr. Justo Gonzalez (its first Latino lecturer), Dr. John Dominic Crossan, Rev. Professor Peter J. Gomes, Dr. Walter Brueggemann, and Father Richard Rohr.
While the lectureship has primarily engaged theologians, it has also brought author Ann Lamott, poet David Whyte, medical ethicists and environmentalists to present spiritual and social issues to our own church members as well as the larger community.
