By drawing on the experience of both Western and non-Western theologians, listeners will be encouraged to think constructively about how the Bible is translated, read, interpreted and lived in distinctive social, religious and cultural contexts. Lectures include:

  • Scripture: An Ancient Text for a Modern World - Gordon Fee
  • God Speaks Portuguese - Valdir Steuernagal
  • The Power of Scriptures in Encountering Buddhist Worldviews - Kang-San Tan
  • Gender. Jihad, and Jesus - Miriam Adeney
