About the Lecturer
Rev. Dr. Rita Nakashima Brock is Research Professor of Theology and Culture and Founding Co-Director of the Soul Repair Center at Brite Divinity School. A noted theologian, she has lectured all over the world. In her two years leading the Soul Repair Center, Dr. Brock has become an internationally recognized expert on the emerging study of moral injury and recovery.
She is a commissioned minister of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and has served in a number of prominent leadership positions, including being the first chair of the Common Global Ministries Board of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ.
Her book, co-authored with Rebecca Ann Parker, Saving Paradise: How Christianity Traded Love of This World for Crucifixion and Empire, was a finalist for an American Academy of Religion Award in reflective, constructive theological studies, and Publisher’s Weekly selected it as a best book in religion in 2008. In December 2008, she and Dr. Gabriella Lettini began work on the Truth Commission on Conscience in War (www.conscienceinwar.org), which, in November 2010, recommended extensive public education on moral injury. In response, she and Dr. Lettini co-authored Soul Repair: Recovery from Moral Injury After War (Beacon, 2012).
The lecture, luncheon and prayer service are free but a donation is suggested. The cost for the Monday workshop is $35. (Students can attend all events free of charge.) There is limited space available so please register so we know you are coming.
