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.

Brad Jersak

Brad Jersak is an author and teacher based in Abbotsford, BC. He serves as a reader and monastery preacher at All Saints of North America Orthodox Monastery. He also occasionally teaches at The Bridge in Abbotsford. Through his books and seminars, Brad shares the good news that God is Love, perfectly revealed in Jesus Christ.

Brad is a broad thinker whose theological journey has traversed a broad spectrum of the Christian landscape. Like many of us, this has left him with a bigger picture of God and a more open dialogue with different Christian traditions. One of his latest books, 'A More Christlike God', positions grace and the cross as the defining image of God—including God the Father. He is influenced by the cosmic creational vision of the Patristics. Brad's heart and style are very pastoral and this lends an intimate and personal scale to his teaching. He offers a lovely blend of intellectual and spiritual depth.
