The Creation Gospel: part 2 - Creators not Critics

In his second talk on the Creation Gospel, Tony moves onto the ‘so what’ of a gospel that begins in Genesis one, rather than Genesis three. He argues that Christians have got stuck on ‘ethics’ as their main voice into the public arena. This backfires because it positions us – and our God – primarily as critics who are outside the system criticising it. Instead, he explains, we should be ‘designers’ who are the major advocates for reform and transformation in the public space. This opens a new curriculum for us – what Tony calls ‘the discipleship of design’.  This is a paradigm shift away from ethics and morality into creativity and transformation.

Does God cause suffering?

This is the first talk from David Bentley Hart during his visit to Australia. He addresses the vexed topic of suffering based on his book ‘The Doors of the Sea’. This talk is followed by a long series of questions which take the topic – and David’s views – deeper and more personal.
