The Story of the Bible, The story of the Book,
How can I be confident in its uniqueness reliability and authority.
A characteristic of growing and prevailing churches has been and still is a great confidence in the uniqueness, reliability and authority of God’s written word, the Bible. But is this view of the bible warranted and justified? In an age of hyper change in all areas of life how should the people of the book approach and view its role in the church, in debate and in our lives?
On Friday evening 1st February and Saturday morning 2nd February we are privileged to welcome James Halstead who will lead us in looking at these questions. James is a lecturer in Biblical studies with St. Mellitus, the UK’s largest ministerial training institution.
On Friday 1st Feb. ( 7.30-9.15pm) James will be speaking on the Bible’s reliability giving us confidence as we read it.
On Saturday 2nd (9.30-1pm) James will be speaking on its uniqueness and its place in debate, the church and our lives.
Then by way of a case study he will look at Jesus’ view of the Bible as found in the temptation of Jesus in Luke Ch.4.
