The Duke Divinity School Office of the Dean will host a retirement lecture given by Grant Wacker, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Christian History, on “Reckoning with the Past.”

Wacker, who joined the faculty at the Divinity School in 1992, will be retiring at the end of the 2014-15 academic year. He is the author, co-author or co-editor of eight books, including Heaven Below: Early Pentecostals and the American Culture, and America’s Pastor: Billy Graham and the Shaping of a Nation.

George Marsden, the Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History Emeritus at the University of Notre Dame, also will deliver opening remarks in honor of Wacker at the lecture.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
