If the Bible is not just a book full of promises or doctrines or rules but is fundamentally the true story of the universe from creation to new creation, what difference does it make when we read the whole Bible as the great drama of the mission of God, centred on Christ, for creation and for humanity?
And if that is the story we are living in as Christian believers, how should the worldview based on that narrative impact the range of academic disciplines we engage in – whether theological or so-called ‘secular’?
On Thursday, 15 July 2021 at 1400 GMT/UTC, Dr. Wright will facilitate a conversation speaking to these questions by presenting how a missional hermeneutic of Scripture impacts various academic disciplines. His approach understands the entire Bible as generated by and is all about God’s mission. Thus, we need an interpretive perspective that is in tune with this great missional theme. We need to see the ‘big picture’ of God’s mission and how the familiar bits and pieces fit into the grand narrative of Scripture.
Dr. Wright is part of the Langham Partnership Global Leadership Team where he serves as the International Ministries Director. In this role, he presents and promotes the vision and work of Langham around the world through his international travel and speaking and his writing ministry as a Christian scholar and author.
