2023 SUMMER SCHOOL IN OXFORD
June 18-23, 2023

Many say the church has been losing the battle of ideas in the West. We are no longer capturing the hearts, minds, and imaginations of our society. We speak mainly to ourselves rather than to the world, and what we do say often lacks the depth for which people are crying out. What if we set for ourselves the task of fostering a new Renaissance of Christian scholarship and culture? Of modeling an outward-facing engagement with the thinking and art of our time? As followers of Jesus, how can we speak in a way that demonstrate s the sanity and humanity of Christ's way of being human, and encourage a more compassionate, cohesive, and creative society? Join us in Oxford to consider this together! Our featured speakers include

NT Wright (Senior Research Fellow at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford; New Testament scholar, Pauline theologian former Anglican Bishop of Durham);

Alister McGrath (Andreas Idreos Professor of Science and Religion at the University of Oxford; Northern Irish theologian, Anglican priest, intellectual historian, scientist, Christian apologist, and public intellectual);

 

Os Guinness (social critic and formerly Guest Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Studies, Guest Scholar and Visiting Fellow at the Brookings Institution, and Senior Fellow at the Trinity Forum and the EastWest Institute in New York)
 

Sarah Clarkson (author of This Beautiful Truth: How God’s Goodness Breaks Into Our Darkness and  Book Girl: A Journey Through the Treasures & Transforming Power of a Reading Life);

Michelle Brown (Professor Emerita of Medieval Manuscript Studies at the School of Advanced Study, University of London and former Curator of Illuminated Manuscripts for the British Library).
