Jesus Christ: The Unanswered Questions

Rowan Williams

Who do you say I am? Jesus asked his disciples this question and for 2,000 years Christians have wrestled with this, the defining question of our faith. Jesus led a completely familiar and recognisable life, but also one that was utterly radical and unrecognisable: a unique divine moment in the history of our world. How on earth can we speak about this, the great mystery at the heart of Christianity?

Rowan Williams says that how we understand Jesus Christ is central to how we understand everything: creation, our faith, our world and ourselves. He says that if we grasp the mysterious reality that Christ is the heart of creation itself, not just an extraordinary human life, it will open a deeply affirmative approach to creation, and offer radical, transformative insights into ethics and politics. He says it will do nothing less than make a new place for us to live - in hope, imagination and action.

Dr Rowan Williams is the Master of Magdalene College Cambridge and was formerly Archbishop of Canterbury. A poet, theologian and author, his numerous academic and popular books include Christ: The Heart of Creation (Bloomsbury 2018) and God With Us: The Meaning Of The Cross And Resurrection - Then And Now (SPCK 2017).

The evening will be chaired by Sarah Mullally, Bishop of London, and include plenty of time for questions and answers.

BSL interpretation will be provided at this event: please let us know if you require seats in the area reserved for this.
