Approaching the world as God’s creation changes everything! But how does it change the way we approach our academic disciplines as Christians?
On Thursday, 16 September 2021 at 1400 UTC/GMT, Dr. Craig Bartholomew, Director of the Kirby Laing Centre for Public Theology in Cambridge, UK, will discuss how a full-orbed doctrine of creation is of vital importance today and why we need to incorporate it within our studies and research.
Dr. Bartholomew will also explore some of the ways in which our understanding of creation transforms and shapes individual disciplines, enables us to engage in dialogue with scholars who hold very different worldviews, and opens up the interrelationship among the disciplines. He argues for seeing the world as it really is, “charged with the grandeur of God” (Gerard Manley Hopkins), bringing hope to a jaded humanity.
In preparation for the webinar, take some time to read the introduction and various chapters to his most recent book, The Doctrine of Creation (IVP Academic, 2020).
