Rt Revd Dr Helen-Ann Hartley To read, mark, learn and inwardly digest: some reflections on a diet of Biblical Interpretation
March 23, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Bible is the foundation of our faith, and we probably have our favourite bits, but what about the parts we don’t understand, or don’t agree with? If it’s all the Word of God how do we navigate its terrain? In this lecture, Bishop Helen-Ann shares some of her own reflections on a number of years pondering these questions. Based on research conducted while on sabbatical leave in New Zealand in 2010 which resulted in the publication of ‘Making Sense of the Bible’ (SPCK, 2011) and her own teaching and pastoral experience, she helps us reflect positively on how we can live faithfully with Scripture in our present context.
