Event description

Description

In this year’s Archbishop Blanch Memorial Lecture, you have the opportunity to hear Professor McGrath talk about the life and work of C. S. Lewis.

Focussing on his conversion to Christianity, his work as an apologist, and some key themes of the ‘Chronicles of Narnia’, McGrath will explore how Lewis's ideas can enrich our personal faith. You’ll also gain insight into how you as an individual and as a church can communicate the key themes of faith in an increasingly secular environment.

Please join us for drinks from 6.30 pm in the area outside the back of the Chapel.

You'll also have the opportunity to buy a selection of books from Liverpool Cathedral Shop, plus Alister McGrath's book about C S Lewis will be on sale.

We are also delighted to announce that Hope University have reprinted the book 'World Our Orphanage: Studies in the Theology of the Bible' by Archbishop Stuart Blanch. These will be on sale at the Lecture for the reduced price of £5 (normal price £6).

Professor McGrath Biography
Alister McGrath is Andreas Idreos Professor of Science and Religion at Oxford University, and associate priest in the Shill Valley and Broadshire Benefice in the Diocese of Oxford.
He has written many books, and is best known for his international bestseller ‘The Dawkins Delusion?’ and for his award-winning biography ‘C. S. Lewis - A Life: Eccentric Genius, Reluctant Prophet’. He is also the author of the world's most widely used theological textbook, Christian Theology: An Introduction, now in its sixth edition.

About the Archbishop Stuart Blanch Lecture Series
Archbishop Stuart Blanch was a teaching Bishop, a theological educator of considerable skill.

The Archbishop Stuart Blanch Lecture series, established in his name, is intended to enable Christians -lay or ordained to understand and engage with issues of theology and contemporary society.

They aim to help address the ‘theological deficit’ identified in the recent Church of England report, ‘Setting God’s People Free’, a challenge for discipleship in today’s society.
