David Jackman - How do we interpret the Bible? - 2 Peter 1:3-4

It’s one of the key questions of our time. With society writing off the bible as a matter of ‘interpretation’, a book that can be made to say anything, how do we respond? Has postmodernity had the last laugh, or does the bible carry a consistent message that can be found through correct interpretation? Is such a thing even possible? These are some of the questions we’ll be addressing with David Jackman at BURNING MAN. This is one session not to miss… David Jackman is one of the UK’s leading Bible teachers and commentators. An International Conference speaker, he is the former President of the Proclamation Trust and author of numerous books and commentaries.

Rev'd David Jackman - Paul and The Athenians - Acts 17:16-34

People need to hear the Gospel. How do you make the most of opportunities to speak about Jesus in a world that doesn’t want to know…? This is just the question David Jackman will be exploring with us at Burning Man. He’ll be looking at ‘Paul and the Greek Philosophers in Athens’ in Acts 17:16-34, and how Paul brilliantly and skilfully shapes an opportunity to proclaim the Gospel. If ever we needed such skills, it’s today! David Jackman is the former President of ‘The Proclamation Trust’ and author of a number of books as well as International speaker and Bible Teacher.

Rev'd Stephen Foster - Elijah and the Prophets of Baal - 1 Kings 18:16-46

We live in a world that’s indifferent and even hostile towards Christianity. In such an age, how can we be men who take a stand and speak courageously for Jesus Christ? This term we are looking at 'Defending the faith', exploring occasions in scripture when men were either forced to take a stand or chose to take an opportunity to speak of Christ and faith. Our term gets off to a thunderous start as Stephen Foster takes us through Elijah's fiery stand off with the prophets of Baal. Stephen Foster is a former criminal barrister and is now a Curate at Holy Trinity Brompton.
