Kelly Monroe Kullberg

DELAWARE, Ohio – Author and founder of The Veritas Forum, Kelly Monroe Kullberg, will discuss faith in the university setting when she speaks at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 8 at Ohio Wesleyan University. Her free, public presentation will be held in the Bayley Room of OWU’s Beeghly Library, 45 Rowland Ave., Delaware.

Kullberg began the The Veritas Forum in 1992 at Harvard University, and it since has been established in 180 universities. The Veritas Forum explores the world’s hardest questions in relation to biblical teachings.

Kullberg edited the award-winning book, “Finding God at Harvard: Spiritual Journeys of Christian Thinkers,” and wrote its sequel, “Finding God Beyond Harvard: The Quest for Veritas.” She also co-wrote “A Faith and Culture Devotional: Daily Readings in Art, Science and Life.”

Of Kullberg’s work, Nancy R. Pearcey of the World Journalism Institute and author of “Total Truth” writes: “The Veritas Forum is having a remarkable impact on college campuses, presenting the intellectual case for Christianity. But around Kelly Monroe Kullberg, ‘intellectual’ never means pedantic! In her account of the organization’s founding, she welcomes readers into her life and ministry in prose that is refreshingly lively and spirited. Every page glows with her spunky personality.”

Passionate for American renewal, Kullberg is a senior fellow at the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty and a co-founder of Christians for a Sustainable Economy. She is developing The American Conservancy for leaders in every sphere to explore biblical truth as highest love, for cultural renewal.

Her lecture is sponsored by Ohio Wesleyan’s Office of the University Chaplain and is a continuance of a Theory-to-Practice Grant project by student Katie Nunner of Naples, Florida. As part of the project, Nunner traveled to England in July to attend “C.S. Lewis, Reclaiming Virtues: Human Flourishing in the 21st Century.”
