What kind of life do you want to live? When we answer this question, we consider those lives who we desire to emulate — our great grandfather, the geniuses and victors of the past, or the heroes of the stories we read and watch. We are made to model, to live our own story in imitation of others. By God’s design, this ideal is Jesus. We are to “follow Him.” The stories that we inhabit either aid or hinder our characters in their transformation towards this end. While the world uplifts the story of the hero — such as Achilles or Captain America — the better story is that of the saint’s life. Although these stories are not always in conflict, the tales of the saint supersede those of the hero because they better prepare us for imitatio Christi.

Join us on April 4, as Dr. Jessica Hooten Wilson delivers the 2018 World and Our Calling lecture, entitled «Captain America vs. Flannery O'Connor: Heroes and Saints for Unholy Times».

Jessica Hooten Wilson is the winner of Redeemer’s 2017 Emerging Public Intellectual Award. The World and Our Calling lecture series explores the facets of the Christian calling to be engaged with our culture.
