Souls at Stake: Tyndale, the Bible and the 21st Century

William Tyndale gave us the Bible in English, and died for it. His passion was to put the Bible into the hands of everyone so that we could read it for ourselves. Executed as a heretic in 1536 for translating the Bible, within a few years his translation was in every church in England. Melvyn Bragg, broadcaster, novelist, and biographer of Tyndale, and Jane Williams, theologian, explore what difference he made to our lives. Chaired by Canon Mark Oakley.

Martin Luther: Catholic Dissident - Peter Stanford

Martin Luther is undeniably one of the people who made the modern world. He risked his life to challenge the corruption and complacency of the late medieval church, and in doing so both changed the political face of Europe and liberated believers to pursue their faith based on scripture and conscience. On the 500th anniversary of Luther nailing his 95 theses to the door of Castle Church in Wittenberg, Peter Stanford examines this complex, often charismatic man of God, his legacy, and the myths that have grown up around him. 

Love is His Meaning - Keith Ward

Jesus’ teaching changed the world, yet his sayings can often seem cryptic and hard to understand. Keith Ward, one of the most distinguished theologians at work today, has spent a lifetime studying the Gospels. He finds the figures of speech and images that Jesus used are all ways of expressing and evoking the self-giving love of God, supremely manifested in Jesus’ own life. 

Divine Sparks - Donna Lazenby

Many of our everyday encounters in the world are touched by the divine, if only we were aware of it. Donna Lazenby says that we may find it easier to experience God in the great moments of our lives, but God often finds a humbler dwelling-place.  Can we learn to be alert to the presence of God in small moments of unexpected joy and human encounter, and also to hear God’s voice in the world’s cries of protest against alienation and injustice?  

Is God Colour-Blind? | Anthony Reddie

We live in a time when the language around immigration has become more vociferous, and the Black Lives Matter movement, originating in America, has sharpened debate about race, ethnicity and justice.  Anthony Reddie says that while God is universal, all our theology is contextual and we need to hear each other’s experiences in order to have a fuller picture of God, and most of all we need to listen to voices which bring news of God beyond the traditional power structures of the church and Christendom.  Dr Anthony Reddie is Professor Extraordinarius in the Department of Philosophy, Practical and Systemic Theology at the University of South Africa and the author of 16 books including Is God Colour-Blind? (SPCK 2009).

The God Who Speaks: the Bible and the Holy Spirit: Kate Coleman and Paula Gooder

The Revd Dr Kate Coleman and Dr Paula Gooder discuss who is the Holy Spirit, what does what we believe about the Holy Spirit mean for our lives and faith, and how can we hear and attend to the voice of the Spirit and follow where we are being guided? Chaired by the Revd Canon Mark Oakley, Chancellor of St Paul's Cathedral. Part of the Adult Learning Programming at St Paul's.

Inventing the Universe- Alister McGrath

We’re often told that faith and science are at war with one another, and we have to choose one or the other. Alister McGrath says it’s time to consider another way looking at these two great cultural forces: what if science and faith might actually enrich each other? What if, together, they give us a deeper and more satisfying understanding of life? Alister McGrath is one of the world’s leading authorities on science and religion and in his new book Inventing the Universe: Why we can’t stop talking about science, faith and God (Hodder 2015), he engages with the biggest questions of all: the origins of the universe, the burden of proof, the meaning of life, the existence of God. Alister McGrath is Professor of Science and Religion at Oxford University and the author of numerous academic and theological works including the best selling The Dawkins Delusion (SPCK 2007).
