Consuming the Gospel

Colin GreeneIn a world of conspicuous consumption the gospel is sometimes cast as the antithesis of a consuming society. Dr Colin Greene is a theologian who has for many years been at the forefront of research into gospel and culture. In this lecture he will consider what the Christian gospel has to say to 21st century consumerism and whether there might not be points of contact between the two.

Colin lectures at Sarum College where he is the Programme Leader, for the MA in Theology, Imagination and Culture.


Holy and acceptable…

Salisbury-Keith-LamdinDr Keith Lamdin asks what gospel truth looks like in the post-modern world. How can our message be both holy and true to the witness of the church through the ages but still accessible and acceptable to the world around us.

In a world with no absolutes how can we proclaim a unique message of truth for that world? Has traditional evangelism had its day or should we be going ‘back to basics’?

Keith Lamdin retired this summer as Principal of Sarum College, a role he has fulfilled for many years. We are delighted he has agreed to interrupt his retirement so soon and look forward to hearing his insights on how and what we proclaim as the gospel of Christ for our times and culture.
