This lecture examines Hebraic and later Jewish understandings of the love commandment as first set down in Leviticus 19:18. It explores several questions. What is the meaning of the commandment in its biblical context? How was it interpreted in the later rabbinic tradition? And how do its interpretations and applications compare with those found in the New Testament? We will see that these questions yield complex answers and significant disagreements, but the disagreements within each tradition, Judaism and Christianity, are greater than the disagreements between them.

This lecture argues that the agenda for the theological enterprise within the Caribbean region is being articulated in a singular fashion in the region's popular music. Taking a Jamaican-Caribbean slant, it explores theological issues arising from the music of often-times controversial Jamaican reggae artiste Tanya Stephens. It revisits concern, as articulated by Caribbean theologians such as Ashley Smith, with the nature and meaning of theology in the region.

In March 2008 a cover story of Christian-Muslim conflicts in Nigeria appeared in the Atlantic. The title was "Which Religion Will Win?" In many ways this is the question that has for centuries been driving the engine of the darker side of Christian-Muslim relations. In this presentation, Professor Scott Alexander will examine the nature of this "Triumphalism" in Chrisitian-Muslim relations. Is Christian-Muslim competition essentially a struggle for ultimate supremacy, or do these traditions hold deep within them an alternative paradigm for interreligious competition?
