As society becomes more secular and questions are often raised about the validity, reliability and relevance of the Bible in 21stcentury, the Presbyterian Church in Ireland’s Union Theological College starts a brand new series of evening lectures next week that seek to answer these basic questions.
Entitled ‘Theology for all’, the first of the six classes starts on 17 October at the College and continues each Thursday (7.30pm to 9.30pm) until 28 November. College Principal, Very Rev Professor Stafford Carson, explained that each evening would be divided up into two sessions, with the first looking at the reliability of the Bible and the second asking ‘What is the Bible and how can it help us?’
“At Union we seek to serve our community and church in preparing students for effective ministry, offering enriched learning opportunities for all our students and providing opportunities for those who want to explore theology at their own pace,” Professor Carson said.
“Theology for all is a great opportunity to do just that in a series that goes to the heart of some the key questions and issues that surround the Bible and Christian belief. As a College we are actively engaged in research that extends our theological understanding of important issues in contemporary life. At the same time we provide opportunities for those who are interested in theology to go deeper, and Theology for all is one such opportunity - all are welcome.”
