    Obedient Subversiveness:

    How the Bible Creates Cultural Critics

     

    with Dr Chris Watkin

    on

    Monday, May 17th at 7:30pm BST

     

    Christians have not always had a reputation for their depth and breadth of engagement in culture and the arts. Where they have fallen short of practising discerning cultural engagement, Dr Chris Watkin argues that it is because they have wandered away from the nature and teaching of the Christian Scriptures. In this webinar, we will see how the Bible embodies and encourages cultural engagement of the broadest and most penetrating sort. We will note that the Bible is peculiarly able to furnish favourable conditions for a cultural criticism which is expansive in scope yet disciplined in analysis, warmly affirming, acutely critiquing and subversively fulfilling the aspirations of our cultural life. Indeed, we will explore just how it is that the Bible creates wise cultural critics.

     

    After a presentation from Dr Watkin, there will be the opportunity for discussion and Q and A on the topic of the Bible and cultural engagement.

    Is Having Children Morally Wrong? (Moot Points)

     

    with Professor David Benatar, Dr Matthew Lee Anderson and Dr Jon Thompson

    on

    Monday, June 7th at 7:30pm BST

     

    We tend to think that bringing a child into the world is a good thing – something to be celebrated, in fact. This assumption is challenged by Antinatalism, an ethical stance which is increasing in popularity. Antinatalists argue that procreation is in itself morally wrong, and should therefore be abandoned. A key voice in this debate is Professor David Benatar, whose book Better Never to Have Been advances the idea that coming into existence is always a serious harm. In this Moot Point event, Prof. Benatar will interact with Christian ethicist Dr. Matthew Lee Anderson, discussing the arguments for and against Antinatalism, and whether and how the Christian faith addresses this most profound of human questions – whether we should continue to exist. A live Q and A session will follow the main discussion.

    In his new book, The Return of the God Hypothesis, Dr Stephen Meyer sheds light on three scientific discoveries which he believes point to an Intelligent Designer.

    A conversation with author and philosopher Esther Lightcap Meek

     

    on

    Monday, August 23rd at 7:30pm BST

     

    How does knowing really work? What do most of us think knowing involves, and have we got it wrong? How does fixing our view of knowing pay off throughout all of our life and work?

     

    Please join us as we discuss these questions and more in a Zoom conversation with Dr Meek.
