“Discerning the Dawn: Knowing God in the New Creation”

Traditional “natural theology” tries to start from the observed world and reason its way to the Christian God, but centuries of natural and social disaster have undermined this optimism. In this lecture, N.T. Wright will discuss how the Christian gospel of new creation through the death and resurrection of Jesus offers a more biblical account, in which the great questions asked by all human societies – justice, spirituality, relationships, beauty, freedom and truth – can be seen in retrospect to be the right questions to which the new creation is giving the fresh answer. This has immediate relevance not only for theology, but for such diverse fields as the relationship of Christianity to scientific endeavor on the one hand and political engagement on the other.

N. T. Wright is Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at University of St. Andrews, Scotland.
