CCU professor to discuss Baha'i faith and peace

  Preston McKever-Floyd  
Preston McKever-Floyd, assistant professor of philosophy and religion at Coastal Carolina University, will lead a discussion on the "Promise of Peace" and the Baha'i Faith at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 9, at the Lackey Chapel on campus. Admission is free and open to the public.

McKever-Floyd, who serves as CCU's chaplain, will discuss the Baha'i Faith, which is one of the newest and fastest-growing world religions. Baha'is believe that world peace is not only possible but inevitable. McKever-Floyd will examine the idea of the inevitability of world peace within the context of the belief structure of the Baha'i religion. The largest concentration of Baha'is in the U.S. is in South Carolina.

McKever-Floyd has been a member of the CCU faculty since 1980. He earned a Ph.D from the University of South Carolina in 2009, a Master of Divinity degree from Duke University in 1979 and a bachelor's degree in philosophy from Virginia State University in 1977. He also studied philosophy and theology at Northwestern University and religion and literature at Emory University.

The discussion is part of the "Living in Peace: Insight from World Religions" series sponsored by the Jackson Family Center for Ethics and Values and CCU's Department of Philosophy and Religion. For more information, contact the center at 843-349-2440.
