A Missional Reading of Scripture
Last month I attended the Missional Reading of Scripture Conference at Calvin Seminary in the US. It was an excellent experience and I would encourage anyone interested in mission or the Bible or both to download the talks from the Calvin Website.
I would particularly highlight the four plenary sessions. The four men giving these talks are probably the people who have most impacted my thinking regarding mission and the Bible over the last ten years. I owe each of them a huge debt and the opportunity to listen to all of them at one conference was remarkable.
- Christopher J.H. Wright: A Missional Reading of the Old Testament
- Michael W. Goheen: A Missional Reading of Scripture and Preaching
- N.T. Wright: A Missional Reading of the New Testament
- Darrell L. Guder: A Missional Reading of Scripture and Theological Education (
I suspect the lecture by Darrell Guder will be of limited interest to most Kouyanet readers – but those involved in theological education shouldn’t miss it.
In addition to the plenary sessions which I’ve linked to here, there are also a number of seminars on the website as well as the video of an evening lecture by Tom Wright.
