Event description

Description

This day seeks to bring a biblical foundation and contours to the ministry of preaching the good news of Jesus Christ, a panel discussion with preachers (ordained and lay), how to nourish your spiritual life as a preacher, and opportunities to ponder how preaching finds its role within the ordained ministry of the Church of England as well as other authorized lay ministries. With contributions from the Rev Dr Tim Ward (Tutor in Homiletics, Oak Hill College), the Rev'd Canon Joanna Collicut McGrath (Ripon College Cuddesdon) and others.

Tim Ward is Tutor in Homiletics at Oak Hill College in London. Before this, he taught at the Proclamation Trust’s Cornhill Training Course. Prior to that he served in pastoral ministry for 14 years. He is the author of a book on the doctrine of scripture, Words of Life: Scripture as the Living and Active Word of God (IVP). He gained his PhD at Edinburgh University in the 1990s, which was published as Word and Supplement: Speech Acts, Biblical Texts and the Sufficiency of Scripture (OUP).

Joanna Collicut McGrath is the Karl Jaspers Lecturer in Psychology and Spirituality at Ripon College, Cuddesdon and Oxford Diocesan Advisor for Spiritual Care for Older People. She is the author of many academic papers and several books including The Dawkins Delusion? (SPCK 2007 with Alister McGrath); Ethical practice in brain injury rehabilitation (OUP 2007); Jesus and the gospel women (2009 SPCK); and The psychology of Christian character formation (2015 SCM). Forthcoming books include an edited volume on neurology and religion (with Alasdair Coles) for CUP.
