Event description

Description

“The God who is transcendent in our midst" (Bonhoeffer): Divine and Creaturely Action according to the Reformation

Prof Tom Greggs, Marischal Professor of Divinity, University of Aberdeen

Is the church something that God does or something that humans do? What does it mean to speak of the church as the body of Christ? In what ways is the church an agent of salvation? This lecture will consider the Reformation's central concern about the inter-action of God's action and creaturely action. It will consider how Reformation theology understood the nature and action of the church as a divine and creaturely reality, and will draw particularly on Dietrich Bonhoeffer and the Reformation heritage from which he draws.

This is the first in a series of lectures organised by the University and Winchester Cathedral to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation and to explore its legacy for the twenty-first century. For details of other lectures in the series, please contact Dr Frederik Mulder: Frederik.Mulder@winchester.ac.uk .

We look forward to seeing you on 7th September.
