Open Day and Whitley Lecture

Wednesday, November 29, 2017

On Wednesday 2nd May 2018, we will be holding our next Open Day. Part of the Open Day programme will include the opportunity to attend the annual Whitley Lecture, which will be given by Helen Paynter in our normal postgraduate lecture slot at 11.15am. The title of the lecture is Dead and Buried? Attending to the voice of the victim in the Old Testament and today.

Helen Paynter is tutor at Bristol Baptist College and a Baptist minister. Her doctoral work was on humour in the book of Kings, and her main current area of research is in the Old Testament narratives of violence and how we read them today. She will also be delivering her lecture at various other venues throughout the country.

The lecture will take place in the Wharncliffe Room at Spurgeon’s College and is free of charge. Please download a flyer for contact details or more information.
