Event description
Come and join us to discuss the role of the Bible in resisting racism by exploring the intersections of faith, Scripture and racial justice!

About this Event

How does the Bible address issues of racism, prejudice and oppression? What are the implications of our social location on how we understand the Bible? How can the Bible help us in our formation to become racial justice advocates in our theology and ministry...?

These are just some of the questions that will be addressed in this Common Awards webinar entitled: The Bible and Resisting Racism.

Prof Robert Beckford, professor of Black Theology at The Queens Foundation, will be in conversation with Prof Grant Macaskill, Kirby Laing Chair of New Testament Exegesis at the University of Aberdeen. The Webinar will be hosted by Augustine Tanner-Ihm, winner of the 2020 Theology Slam.

The event will take place via Zoom, on 4 September, 2-3pm.

Please note that a BSL interpreter will be present at this event.
