Biblical Wisdom for a
What did people believe in the first century, before the gospel broke into their world? And how did the gospel speak to those beliefs? What longings did it meet? What fears did it assuage? What did it challenge? What did it affirm?
What do people believe today, in a world which has largely moved on from Christian thought? What longings and fears do we have? How might we articulate and embody the gospel today so that it can have the impact it had in the first century?
This summer school will seek to drill down into the depths of biblical wisdom so as to equip us to address healingly the brokenness of our world.
Wycliffe Hall’s Senior Research Fellow, NT Wright, will explore this topic, accompanied by other renowned scholars. In the afternoons, we shall explore some of the beautiful and historic sites in and around Oxford. And we shall enjoy a sumptuous evening meal in the iconic setting of Balliol College’s dining hall. We would love you to join us.
