Theology For All Seminar 2013

READING OUR CULTURE

We are living in interesting times. Recent censuses tell us that more and more Britons are identifying themselves as having no religion, and yet when we look closely at our culture we start to realise that Britain is more religious, enthusiastic and obsessive than ever.

Why the teenage fascination with films about vampires and zombies? Why do people spend so much time watching soap operas? What lessons could we learn from the Olympic opening ceremony? Is there even a connection between the Gospel and Japanese toilets?

On Monday 28th January 2013 Theology For All held a seminar on 'Reading Our Culture' with guest speaker Dr Daniel Strange.

Dr Daniel Strange is Lecturer in Culture, Religion and Public Theology at Oak Hill Theological College, London. Dan believes that within our British evangelical context, Christian worldview thinking does not come naturally to us. However, there is a whole world to claim for Christ and that is tremendously exciting! He hopes that he can enthuse students to embrace this comprehensive and critical vision. Before Oak Hill, Dan worked for UCCF, as Co-ordinator of the Religious and Theological Studies Fellowship. His PhD is in the area of systematics. Dan's thesis, The Possibility of Salvation among the Unevangelised, has been published by Paternoster Press.
