How do we talk about the Infinite? Should we call it “God”?

Christian Pastor Tim Keller and the Dean of the Yale School, Anthony Kronman, discuss the nature of the Eternal during the Veritas Forum at Yale.


Two weeks ago, we hosted a Veritas Forum at Yale with Tim Keller and Anthony Kronman, former Dean of the Yale Law School and author of Confessions of a Born-Again Pagan.  Last week, The New Yorker published an profile on Prof. Kronman, outlining his “theology”—a belief system that stems from the penetrative question, “Is anything eternal?” For Prof. Kronman, this belief system represents a synthesis of Aristotle, Augustine, and Spinoza, among others, alongside a poetic understanding of the Eternal.
