  'Exile away from his land': Is landlessness the ultimate punishment in Amos?
Here's an audio recording (made on my phone) with the presentation slides from the paper I gave to a Laidlaw Carey Graduate School seminar on The Land of Promise earlier this week.

The recording includes the question time from the day. The recording lasts about 30 minutes and is available in two formats:

  Dys/functional families: what are biblical family values?
Traditional modern Western family structures and values are crumbling or under attack. Christian responses are often little more than a knee-jerk defence of the Victorian model of Western nuclear family (often also with a Victorian patriarchalism as part of the package) dressed up with a few selected biblical verses which are claimed to support this model.

In a paper for the Tyndale Carey Graduate School (but open to anyone who is interested) I will examine the family narratives of the Hebrew Bible to see what values may be discerned in these stories of dys/functional families, and how these might help us develop a more useful theology of family for 21st Century Christianity.

Date : September 17th
Time : 7pm
Place: Carey Baptist College

All welcome.
