Christians have not always had a reputation for their depth and breadth of engagement in culture and the arts. Whether this assessment is fair or not, Dr. Chris Watkin argues that it ought not to be plausible, given the nature and teaching of the Christian Scriptures. In this webinar, we will see how the Bible embodies and encourages cultural engagement of the broadest and most penetrating sort. We will note that the Bible is uniquely able to furnish the right conditions for cultural criticism which is expansive in scope yet disciplined in analysis, potently searching and yet generously affirming of our cultural life. Indeed, we will explore just how it is that the Bible creates wise cultural critics.
After a presentation from Dr. Chris Watkin, there will be the opportunity for discussion and Q and A on the topic of the Bible and cultural engagement.
