New Creation Has Begun—The Haverim Lectures at the Center for Judaic-Christian Studies

I am about to head off to Dayton, OH to give the Haverim Lectures at the Center for Judaic-Christian Studies (Haverim is Hebrew for friends).

I’ll be giving three lectures on Saturday, March 18, 2017 on the topic of eschatology, with the overall title: New Creation Has Begun: How This Big Idea Changes Everything.

My three lectures will address:

  • The sacred calling of being human as the image of God
  • The overall plot of the biblical story
  • The Bible’s vision of the consummation of all things

They will be based on my book A New Heaven and a New Earth: Reclaiming Biblical Eschatology (Baker Academic, 2014) and will focus on how the biblical vision of the origin and destiny of creation can inspire and empower us for living today.

You can access more information about the lectures here.

The Center for Judaic-Christian Studies plans to make recordings of the lectures available for those interested.

  1. Would love to be there. I teach Biblical Theology in New Zealand. Your work has been influential in my learning as teaching over the years.
    Thanks.

  2. Alastair, I may be teaching in a study abroad program in NZ for US students in the next year or two. If it’s possible (depending on the geography and time frame), I would like to meet you. (You’re at Laidlaw College?)

  3. We were there for the lectures. They were great! Thanks so much for coming to Dayton.

    There has been so much popular interest in end-time scenarios, but the thing to really get excited about is the renewed world that comes after that.

    We were intrigued by one of your asides, too. What were you saying about Samuel and Saul?
