Come and hear Dr Mike Bird, Ridley Melbourne's new Theology Lecturer. Dr. Bird will give a lecture on 'What is evangelical about evangelical theology?' which will be followed by questions and discussion.

Michael describes himself as a “biblical theologian” who endeavours to bring together biblical studies and systematic theology. He believes that the purpose of the church is to “gospelize,” that is to preach, promote, and practice the Gospel-story of the Lord Jesus Christ. Remembered by students for his mix of outlandish humour and intellectual rigor, he makes theology both entertaining and challenging.

As an industrious researcher, Michael has written and edited over fifteen books in the fields of Septuagint, Historical Jesus, Gospels, St. Paul, Biblical Theology, and Systematic Theology. His forthcoming book Evangelical Theology is an attempt to develop a truly gospel-based theology and will be released in late 2013. He is the senior editor for the Journal for the Study of Paul and His Letters, co-editor of the New Covenant Commentary Series, an associate editor for Zondervan’s The Story of God Bible Commentary, and an elected member of the Studiorum Novi Testamenti Societas (the international society of New Testament scholars).  He speaks often at conferences in the Australia, the UK, and USA and is currently working on a New Testament Introduction co-authored with N.T. Wright. He also runs a popular blog called Euangelion
