Scripture and the University Seminar

  Conveners: Bradley Green, Eric Johnson      Email conveners

The Scripture and the University Seminar (SAUS) initiates a multi-year project to explore the issue of the relationship between Scripture and the university. SAUS is part of the Kirby Laing Centre Scripture Collective (KLCSC).

This year’s seminar considers key foundational or “meta” questions related to the challenging issue of Scripture and the university. Given that the university has been traditionally committed to the reality and acquisition and passing on of knowledge and wisdom, and given that Scripture is likewise committed to the twin realities of knowledge and wisdom, the study of the relationship of Scripture and the university is fitting and holds great promise. The goal of these sessions is to produce thoughtful and insightful essays which meaningfully explore and explicate the relationship between Scripture and the university.
