Ringside Preachers

Feb 3, 2023

April is the cruellest month, breeding. Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing. Memory and desire, stirring. Dull roots with spring rain. (The Wasteland, T.S. Eliot) The Ringside Preachers and Dr. Arthur Just explore the poetry of T.S. Eliot and his expression of the Christian Faith at Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne.

  2. The Philosophy of Modern and Postmodern Christianity
  3. How does Eliot’s poetry speak to Christians today?
  4. Repentance and Culture
