Who Is Deluded: Dawkins or Christians?

contemporary creed

Who Is Deluded: Dawkins or Christians?

More than twenty people attended a stimulating talk entitled “Who is Deluded: Dawkins or Christians?” delivered by John Morris at Sarum College on Thursday, May 31st, after which he signed copies of his new book Contemporary Creed.

Writing for Christians, Atheists and Agnostics alike, Morris explores the ‘big questions’ presented by religious belief in contemporary society, and unlike Richard Dawkins, finds no conflict between evolution, God, faith and modern science.

Contemporary Creed is available to buy from Sarum College Bookshop for £9.99

“My problem with most books on God by believers is that they treat theology as though it were a science. It’s not – and John Morris doesn’t try to pretend that it is. Most refreshing!” – John Humphreys, BBC Today, Mastermind, and author of ‘In God We Doubt’.

“John Morris addresses many significant questions about Christian belief in a careful and truth-seeking manner.” – Revd Dr John Polkinghorne, KBE, FRS, physicist and theologian.

Book of the Month: May 2012

The Faith of the English by Nigel Rooms 

A highly original, intriguing, intelligent and in many ways endearingly English book.  – Kate Fox, author of ‘Watching the English’

Unlike a number of other writers I could mention, Rooms gets the distinction right. He also understands that genuine inculturation produces fresh theological insights as the gospel discloses new aspects of its message in dialogue with different cultures.  – Paul Richardson, The Church of England Newspaper

What does it mean to be an English Christian? Many Christians are aware of the need to adapt the presentation of the gospel to different cultures (’inculturation’) in their overseas mission activity, but how can the gospel best be presented to those at home? What happens when the principles of inculturation are applied to English culture? This book encourages people to think more deeply about the relationship between faith and culture, and to see how the good news can most effectively be brought to the English.

Liturgy Fit for a Queen: James Steven featured on BBC Radio Wiltshire

James Steven, programme leader in liturgy and worship here at Sarum College, and Jonathan Ball, chaplain to Bishop Nicholas Holtam, was interviewed by BBC Radio Wiltshire’s Heather Skull about the role of the church at times of national importance. The interview was featured on the BBC Radio Wiltshire’s Breakfast show Sunday, 29 April.

Steven and Ball co-taught God Save Our Gracious Queen: Liturgy at Times of National Importance, a course held on 20 April at Sarum College on the role and design of worship for national events such as the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
