Preaching to Robots: Chalcedonian Christology and the Other-than-Human (5/17/23)—Dr. Kirsten Sanders

If you were going to preach to a robot, how would you begin? Would you introduce the story of Christ as something that could be memorized and passed on? Would you introduce questions of personal behavior and identity? Could robots even understand such a thing? In this engaging talk, Dr. Kirsten Sanders will speak to Theology on Tap on how the story of Christ’s two natures, given in the Chalcedonian definition, helps us to engage questions about artificial intelligence and human existence in the modern world.

Dr. Kirsten Sanders is a systematic theologian whose work has been featured in various publications including Christianity TodayThe Hedgehog ReviewCommentPlough, and Mere Orthodoxy. She is the founder and director of Kinisi Theology Collective, a public theology project that aims to bridge the gap between traditional seminary education and the local church.
