SPU Welcomes Anglican Bishop N.T. Wright for President’s Symposium in May

ON MAY 18 AND 19, 2005, Seattle Pacific University will host one of the world’s leading New Testament scholars, N.T. Wright, for the President’s Symposium on The Gospel and Cultural Engagement. The event is expected to draw church leaders and laypeople from throughout the region to hear Wright relect on Christian influence in a skeptical age.

Wright is bishop of Durham in England and former canon theologian of Westminster Abbey. He has authored more than 30 books, including The Original Jesus, The Challenge of Jesus, and Jesus and the Victory of God, which is regarded as one of the most significant studies within contemporary scholarly research on the historical Jesus. A frequent guest on radio and television, Wright taught for 20 years at Cambridge, McGill, and Oxford universities.

The symposium includes a Church Leaders Forum titled “The Christian Challenge in the Postmodern World” at 11:30 a.m. on May 18. Two free public lectures will also be held: “Decoding the Da Vinci Code: The Challenge of Historic Christianity to Postmodern Fantasy” at 7:30 p.m. on May 18, and “God, the Tsunami, and 9/11: The New Problem of Evil” at 7:30 p.m. on May 19.

To make a reservation for the Church Leaders Forum, call 206/281-2100. For more information about the public lectures, call 206/281-2111. Reservations are not required for the public lectures, but due to limited space, guests are encouraged to arrive early.
