Description

This conference examines the interplay between the authority, translation, reading and interpretation of the Scriptures, with particular reference to language and culture. 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
  • Drawing Together the Themes of the Conference - Christopher Wright
