N. T. Wright, Bishop of Durham and NT Scholar, to Lecture at TWU
Trinity Western University is pleased to welcome Dr. N. T. Wright, prominent New Testament scholar and Bishop of Durham of the Anglican Church, on November 16-17, 2010, for the Distinguished Lecturer Series. Bishop Wright has authored over 60 books for both scholarly and popular audiences. His particular interest is Jesus and Christian origins.
In addition to speaking to TWU students during several Chapels, Bishop Wright will also be giving a Public Lecture on November 16 and participating in a special, three-hour Symposium with the Faculty of Religious Studies and invited guest scholars on November 17.
The University Distinguished Lecturer Series is designed to introduce students and the general public to some of the most profound Christian thinkers of our time.
In the Symposium, more opportunity is given for engagement, dialogue, and investigation of ideas presented by Bishop Wright, as members of the Department of Religious Studies and invited scholars from across the region respond to Bishop Wright’s work. Plans are under way to collect the presentations from the Symposium into a substantial volume, so that the events of this single day will continue to reverberate long into the future.

More information as to Dr. Wright’s lecture topics will be posted here as the information becomes available.
