Professor J. Richard Middleton’s lecture will present a comprehensive biblical vision of God’s love and care for the entire universe, and his overarching purpose to fill creation with the fullness of his presence.  Surveying the biblical vistas of God’s creation purpose, the pervasive tragedy of human rebellion, and the redemptive incarnation of Christ, Richard’s talk will climax with the New Testament’s promise of the redemption of all things – ‘a new heaven and a new earth’.

Professor Middleton is well known for The Transforming Vision, the book he wrote with Brian Walsh introducing the biblical worldview.

    Thanks! That is very encouraging. I am an African struggling with the question:

    How should an African who was converted to Western-interpreted and denominationalized Christianity inculturate the Gospel in African thought forms just as Paul did, as well as the subsequent Western theologians in Greek though forms?

    I will unfortunately not be able to make this as I have Tuesday commitments. Will it possibly be recorded in any way?
