January 2011 will witness Professor Bruce McCormack give the Croall Lectures (in the Martin Hall at New College) on the theme ‘Abandoned by God: The Death of Christ in Systematic, Historical, and Exegetical Perspective’. The titles are:
- 17th January – Penal Substitution: Its Problems and Its Promise
- 18th January – The Cry of Dereliction: The Strange Fate of Jesus in the New Testament
- 20th January – The Incarnation as Saving Event: Theories Which Order the Work of Christ to a Metaphysical Conception of His Person
- 24th January – Let Justice and Peace Reign: Theories Which Fail to Integrate the Person and Work of Christ
- 25th January – After Metaphysics: Theories Which Order the Person of Christ to His Work
- 27th January – The Lord of Glory was Crucified: Reformed Kenoticism and Death in God.
And later in the year (September 27 – October 4, 2011), Professor McCormack will also be giving the Kantzer Lectures on the theme ‘The God Who Graciously Elects: Six Lectures on the Doctrine of Election’.
Any who have been so priviledged to have heard Bruce lecture before can anticipate a real feast.
