  • C.S Lewis as Sage of Modernity

    C.S Lewis as Sage of Modernity

    21/01/2021 Duración: 01h28min

    A lecture and Q&A session by Davenant Teaching Fellow Joseph Minich entitled "C.S. Lewis as Sage of Modernity: The Rhetoric of Miracles." Navigating what we call "modernity" remains a challenge for Christians. Indeed, defining modernity remains contentious. Are we currently in modernity? Or late-modernity? Or postmodernity? What kind of human life is possible in any of them? If the world at large remains confused about these questions, it is little wonder that the church is also. Yet we are not without guides as we find ourselves in the dark woods of modernity. The great Protestant scholar and writer C.S. Lewis stands above as one of the faithul Christian's chief companions in understanding and navigating the modern world - perhaps nowhere more so than in his book "Miracles". In this lecture, Dr. Joseph Minich argues that Lewis’ rhetorical approach to his contemporaries in "Miracles" — whether they be Christians or non-Christians — is radically shaped by his reading of modernity. Yet rather than view moderni

    Christmas and the Cross in the Ancient Church

    16/12/2020 Duración: 01h19min

    A lecture and Q&A session by Visiting Davenant Hall Fellow, Dr. Matthew Hoskins, entitled "Christmas and the Cross in the Ancient Church: Exploring the Mystery of the Trinity on the Feast of the Nativity." What is so special about the baby born in Bethlehem that, to celebrate his birth, we should sing songs to Him, have feasts with our families, decorate our homes, and take days off work? For ancient Christians, the answer was that Jesus is Christ is God. The great theologians of the fourth-century theologians clarified this to mean that Jesus is of the same substance as God the Father. But for many of these ancient theologians, the starting point is not the virgin mother and child, not the little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay, not the angels from the realms of glory. Rather, for those in the tradition of St Athanasius (Bishop of Alexandria in Egypt from 328-373) it was Christ high and lifted up, naked and bleeding on a cross at Golgotha, that lead them to profess his divinity. In this lecture, Dr Matthew Hos

  • The Future of Theological Education — Webinar Recording

    The Future of Theological Education — Webinar Recording

    15/10/2020 Duración: 01h59min

    Covid-19 has wreaked havoc this year not merely on public health or economic stability, but perhaps most lastingly, on our institutions of higher education. We can lament this crisis, but we must also learn from it. While many worthy institutions may be struggling now through no fault of their own, the coronavirus crisis has also revealed a deeper rot at the heart of much of American higher education, to which theological education has not been immune. How can we use this crisis to creatively rethink the relationship between the church and the academy? How can we mold institutions that can offer accessible, rigorous, and practical intellectual formation for Christian scholars, pastors, and teachers? Join Brad Littlejohn, Ephraim Radner, R. R. Reno, and O. Alan Noble as they discuss the future of theological education. This webinar was recorded on October 14th, 2020, via Zoom.

  • How Should the Church Respond?

    How Should the Church Respond?

    28/04/2020 Duración: 22min

    In this final discussion, Brad Littlejohn and Alastair Roberts discuss how pastors and churches can begin to model and restore the kinds of networks of trust, and healthy relationships to authority and expertise, that can enable us to navigate crises such as the one that currently faces us. They also suggest practical ways that churches can shine as lights in their communities, reminding people of the virtues of humility, self-sacrifice, and patience during a time of trial such as we have not known in several generations.

  • The Epistemic Crisis

    The Epistemic Crisis

    28/04/2020 Duración: 25min

    In this discussion, Brad Littlejohn and Alastair Roberts get to the most fundamental aspect of the crisis now facing us: the epistemic crisis that has made it difficult for many citizens to understand or agree about the nature of the threat that faces us. How are we to know when to defer to experts? How do we even know who the right experts are? How do we deal with problems of uncertainty and probability when the stakes are high, and why do we seem so bad at sorting through these things in an era when we have more access to information than ever before?

    28/04/2020 Duración: 17min

    In this discussion, Brad Littlejohn and Alastair Roberts explore the question of tradeoffs in relation to Covid-19. Is it true that "the cure may be worse than the disease," that we need to balance the protection of the economy against the protection of lives? In fact, we need to understand how deeply intertwined the health and economic challenges are. They also explore the threats to freedom that could emerge in the form of new surveillance measures, and the need to grapple with these wisely. Recorded 4/16

  • When to Obey, When to Protest

    When to Obey, When to Protest

    28/04/2020 Duración: 25min

    In this discussion, Brad Littlejohn and Alastair Roberts address the concern that, even if government officials have the right *in principle* to impose emergency measures, they may be overreaching now. Many have started questioning whether the virus is so bad after all, or whether the restrictions in some communities are too strict. What biblical and prudential principles can guide us in what faithful submission to governing authorities looks like, when we have trouble understanding the rationale for controversial decisions? Recorded 4/16

  • Are They Allowed to Do That?

    Are They Allowed to Do That?

    28/04/2020 Duración: 11min

    In this discussion, Brad Littlejohn and Alastair Roberts address the question that some Christians have been asking: do government officials have the right to close businesses and churches? Is this a violation of the separation of church and state and of religious freedom? What is the extent of government emergency powers? Recorded 4/16
