    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.

    The Round Church provides a compelling concert space. From its dramatic ambience and intimate setting to its striking architecture and naturally impressive acoustics, the building has facilitated the making of beautiful music for centuries. We welcome the opportunity to continue this tradition, and hope you will enquire about using the Round Church for your next concert, performance or theatrical production.

    ‘We wanted to film a promotional video for our local company in iconic buildings in Cambridge. The Round Church is a building full of history, and is well known by locals and visitors alike. For us, that weight of history and the environment within its walls were the deciding factors in our choice to film here, and the director was extremely pleased with the space. The Round Church is indeed a location where a multitude of events can be held, and its walls provide not only a beautiful aesthetic, but are also full of history and atmosphere.’  – Luis, Nanna Mexico

    Whether you’re organising a seminar, planning a conference, or running a workshop, the Round Church may be just the sort of interesting space you’re searching for. While it may not offer state-of-the-art technological capabilities, we believe it more than makes up for it in character!

    ‘The Christian Medical Fellowship takes about 20 international students from emerging national movements to Cambridge each year. Christian Heritage provides an outstanding day package, with a morning lecture on the sacred/secular divide, or the significance of worldviews. An afternoon walking tour then illustrates how Christians have shaped Western civilization for the public good. It is a great encouragement for us to boldly imitate the heroes of faith in our own generation. There is nothing quite like it. Highly recommended!’  – Dr Alex Bunn, Associate Head CMF Student Ministries
