In 2009 Dr. Camp received a grant to travel to the Middle East and spend time in residence in Jerusalem, where he met with both Christians and Muslim peacemakers and activists. In this session he will present observations on his trip, as well as a brief typology of modes of thinking about warfare in the two different faith traditions.

Dr. Camp is Associate Professor of Theology and Ethics at Lipscomb University in Nashville, where he is also Senior Faculty Fellow in the Center for International Peace and Justice. He holds degrees from Lipscomb and Abilene Christian University, and the Ph.D. in Moral Theology from the University of Notre Dame. In addition to teaching and writing, he is creator and host of “Tokens,” a program akin to a cross-breed of Garrison Keillor and Bill Moyers—cultural critique, good music, storytelling and author interviews.  Lee and his wife Laura have three sons.
