Prof. Dr. Mirsolav Volf (HR)

Miroslav Volf is a Croatian Protestant theologian and public intellectual who has been described as "one of the most celebrated theologians of our day". His book Exclusion and Embrace: A Theological Exploration of Identity, Otherness and Reconciliation received the 2002 Grawemeyer Award. The book focuses on exclusion between groups of people and reaches back to the New Testament metaphor of salvation as reconciliation. It offers the idea of embrace as a theological response to the problem of alienation of peoples.
