Event description

Description

As we look back over 75 years in gratitude, we also want to look ahead in faith!

We hope this lecture and seminar series will exhibit not just the work of our faculty but also the heart of Belfast Bible College. We are committed to being a place of learning, to serve the church by using theology to interpret and engage with the world around us.

This series will trace decisive, emerging themes that impact both the church and culture and that cut across the generations. We will engage the complexity of each subject with a view to sow hope and recognise where God is at work – and how we can join him.


Through this series we will tackle four themes: the Bible, the church, the next generation and identity.

Post Bible? Is the Bible irrelevant, out of date or even immoral?

Post Christian? What are the future shapes of church and mission in Northern Ireland?

Post Postmodern? What theological challenges face the next generations and how are they responding?

Post Global? How can a biblical perspective inform our understanding of ethnic and national identity?



Post Bible?

Is the Bible irrelevant, out of date or even immoral?

Contemporary society increasingly devalues the Christian Scriptures, partially due to perceptions that it contains elements that are inappropriate, out of date or even destructive. Two of our BBC lecturers will help us explore ways to think about these questions and how we engage with the Bible today.

Dr Karen Fulton will focus on approaches to biblical passages on gender and explore whether biblical views on this issue are out of date, as is often claimed.

Dr William Ford will share some insights from his ongoing research into divinely commanded violence in the conquest of Canaan and the theological questions that this raises.
