The God who Speaks: The bible in today’s world
1.30pm – 7.30pm 9th January 2020
Newman University, Genners Lane, Bartley Green, Birmingham, B32 3NT
As part of the Roman Catholic and Bible Society’s initiative ‘Year of the Word (20202)’, we are launching the Birmingham programme with a special event at Newman.
This event is a series of talks and workshops that explore the use of the Bible within today’s world.
Sessions include: a discussion on the Bible in social media and non-faith settings; workshops on the Bible in the contemporary world of work, and working with people from non-traditional church backgrounds who are reading the Bible for the first time. The evening key-note address, following the launch reception, will be given by Rev. Dr. Jim West (Ming Hua Theological College) who will draw upon his experiences as an Old Testament scholar and church minister.
We are also delighted to announce that De Gruyter, the publishers of Encyclopedia of the Bible and its Reception (EBR), which to date runs to 17 volumes, has offered to give everyone who books a place on this event 30 days free access to the online EBR database containing thousands of articles.
