Whether talking about Elvis, the Eucharist, Christian hope, sex or reality TV, Rodney Clapp is insightful, funny, earthy, challenging and wise.
Clapp, editorial director and cofounder of Brazos Press, a publishing house of ecumenical Christian books cast at the trade and academic levels, will deliver Lakeland College's Mission House Lecture on Tuesday, Nov. 6, at 11 a.m.
The lecture, held in Lakeland's Bradley Fine Arts Building, is free and open to the public.
Clapp demonstrates through his writings and interaction with people why Christian spirituality must be centered in the life and practices of the Christian congregation. He is the author of six books, including the forthcoming "Johnny Cash and the Great American Contradiction: Christianity and the Battle for the Soul of a Nation," as well as "A Peculiar People: The Church as Culture in a Post-Christian Society."
He has contributed essays to 16 other books and published more than 100 essays in such venues as Christian Century, Catholic Digest, The Church of England Newspaper, The Mennonite Quarterly Review and Cultural Encounters. He has formerly edited Prism, the magazine of Evangelicals for Social Action, and served as an editor at InterVarsity Press and Christianity Today.
