Philosopher William Hasker to give guest lecture March 8 on relationship between God and time
Dr. R. William Hasker, professor emeritus of philosophy at Huntington University in Indiana, will give a guest lecture, "God's Time," at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 8, in Room 126 (auditorium), John R. Roach Center for the Liberal Arts.
The lecture is free and open to the public, sponsored by the the University of St. Thomas' Aquinas Chair in Philosophy and Theology.
Hasker will consider these questions: What are the options concerning the relationship between God and time? Is God temporal or timeless? Is time static or dynamic?

Other works include Reason and Religious Belief: An Introduction to the Philosophy of Religion (Oxford University Press) and God, Time, and Knowledge (Cornell University Press).
