A Conversation with Greg Boyd - Saturday 23rd July 2016

SCOTTISH  NETWORK  CHURCHES  and  NEOPOLIS  are sponsoring A Conversation with Greg Boyd on Saturday 23rd July 2016 from 10am to 1pm in Bishopbriggs Community Church, 21 Park Avenue G64 2SN.

Greg Boyd (Phd, Princeton Theological Seminary) is an internationally recognised theologian, preacher, teacher, apologist and author.  He is the co-founder of Woodland Hills Church in St Paul, Minnesota where he serves as Senior Pastor, and has authored or co-authored 20 books and numerous academic articles, including his best-selling and awardwinning Letters From a Skeptic and his recent books Repenting of Religion and God of the Possible: A Biblical Introduction to the Open View of God.  Greg's apologetic writings and public debates on the historical Jesus and the problem of evil have helped many skeptics embrace faith, and his writings and seminars on spiritual transformation have had a revolutionary, freeing impact on many.

In our Conversation with Greg, we will highlight issues that are pertinent to urban mission and ministry.  In particular, we will explore the biblical theme of shalom and what difference it makes in our approach to ministry in the cities of our world.  How are we to understand the identity of Messiah as the 'prince of peace' and how does it impact us at a street level?  Why does the apostle Paul offer a midrashic treatment of Isaiah when he suggests that Christ 'came preaching peace' and how does this shape the contours of the Gospel for the city?

Furthermore, we will explore with Greg all of the nuances of what he means by 'an open view of God'.  How are we to understand the Bible as narrative as it impinges upon the freedom of God?  How are we to approach the centrality of the Gospel as it relates to human freedom:  Greg will give special attention to how our theological frameworks shape the manner in which we pray - for ourselves, our contexts, our ministries and our missional mandate in the world.

Our time with Greg Boyd will be entirely given to questions, debate and roundtable discussions.  Come along with the questions you would like to pose to Greg.
