13th September 2014 - One Day Conference "Mission and Minds: Cultural Challenge" - London

Conference Picture
This world is God’s world, and mission is joining God in his caring for, sustaining and transforming His world, with the goal of re-establishing harmony between God and his creation, including humankind. It is a privilege and joy to be part of God's mission in the university setting. We are focusing on crossing the boundary between academia and the church - this is a really important issue.
Purpose: To explore how to see academic work as part of God crossing cultures on His mission and delighting in using academics like us in this work

Interpretation of the Bible

To understand the Bible adequately as the Word of God, we must coordinate all of the concerns that continue to be fruitful about the words that were written, how our own claims to know the truth can be supported or not, God's acts in history and the centrality of Jesus Christ.

This is the conclusion of Carl Trueman (Associate Professor of Church History and Historical Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia PA, USA) in a short paper titled, "The status of Scripture in Theology since the Enlightenment: the rise of biblical criticism."
