Brad Jersak: Plato, Plantinga, and Paul—toward Christian knowing

Rev Dr Brad Jersak explores Christian knowing through Plato, Plantinga, and Paul the Apostle. This is an incredibly important topic for Christians today as most of us feel caught between the conservative ‘Biblical’ view that dominates Sydney evangelicalism, and a more liberal humanist view that seems to threaten the pillars of faith. Brad has a rich mind and insightful perspectives, including a deep understanding of the early church fathers. He will offer us a much wider paradigm of knowing and revelation that does not toss out the Bible but balances it. In so doing he will demonstrate that far from this being a dangerous liberalising of truth, we are only recapturing the dominant orthodoxy that characterised the early church.

Design and Theology

Rikk Watts

Welcome to the ‘Design and Theology’ series with Rikk Watts. Rikk will present this series with Tony Golsby-Smith in a live conversation format. For years Tony and Rikk have explored this topic together. In Gospel Conversations we advance ‘creation’ as the foundation of the good news - but this raises the question, “What is our role as ‘sub-creators’ in the creation?” The emerging field of ‘design thinking’ offers us a window onto the creative act - its qualities, skills and impacts. It is a paradigm shift from the analytic rationalism that has dominated both science and theology. In these talks Tony will provide the lens of ‘design and creativity’ and Rikk will take us to three major sections of the Scriptures to show us this ‘design’ thinking in practice. We will begin with Moses and the Tabernacle in our first session.

We send out two emails a month, one announcing the next event, and a follow-up email when the talk has been published.

In a real sense there is no end to this exploration as we are pursuing what the great theologian Jonathan Edwards called ‘the infinite enlargement’.
