Gore Lecture 2014: The Faithfulness of God

Mar 06, 2014, 04:05 PM

Speaker: The Right Reverend Professor NT Wright, University of St Andrews Chair: Canon Professor Vernon White

The faithfulness of God is a controlling theme of Pauls’ writings. Divine faithfulness, both to covenant and to creation, raises questions of considerable contemporary urgency: the new challenge to unity, a vision of ecological stewardship, the quest for holiness, and the renewal of mission, particularly in relation to social and political moods and structures. In these areas Paul cuts across the lines of fashionable thinking now, as he did in his own day: this lecture will explore the key current debates, and expound a fresh way of reading Paul (as in the author’s recent book).
