Join us for the Leon Morris Lecture on 28 Aug 2023. This lecture will do a deep dive into 1 Corinthians 1, exploring Christian engagement in the public space. It will argue that this rich biblical paradigm for cultural engagement should be at the heart of contemporary Christian interventions into the most important public debates in our late modern society.
