Jon Levenson, the Albert A. List professor of Jewish Studies at Harvard Divinity School, focuses on the tension between the theological aspects of the flawed members of the Catholic Church and the holy community of people protected by God's promises. He is a specialist in the literary and theological dimensions of the Hebrew Bible. Levenson is the author of nine books, including Sinai and Zion: An Entry into the Jewish Bible and Creation and the Persistence of Evil: The Jewish Drama of Divine Omnipotence.
Levenson is introduced by Fred Lawrence, director of the Lonergan Workshop, and Ben Birnbaum, editor, Boston College Magazine.
