Nov5 How Do You Present Faith in a Post-Modern Culture?
This special guest talk by Dr. Alister McGrath considers some of the major features of “postmodern culture,” which includes a preference for images and stories over arguments, and a suspicion towards “big ideas” of reality. Drawing on themes from his biography of C. S. Lewis, Dr. McGrath will show how Christianity can connect with and reach into the present culture of deep suspicion towards concepts such as truth. This talk will take place during 3pm service on 5 November. Find out more.
