2 angles on the contemporary world – the bible’s and the postmodernist’s

by quaesitor

some of you may be interested in the fact that two recent series of talks are now available to download for FREE on iTunes. I suppose they complement one another a bit, in that both were recorded at 1-day seminars at All Souls in the last year and both seek to present the big picture – the first of the Bible, the second of western culture over the last 1000 years or so!

These 5 talks trace the Bible’s story under the banner theme of HOPE – what gives us hope today? The foundational verse is:

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Romans 15:4

A journey in 5 parts:

  • 1. ESTABLISHED HOPES: Genesis to Babel
  • 2. FOUNDATIONAL HOPES: Abraham to Moses
  • 3. DISAPPOINTED HOPES: Joshua to Exile
  • 4. REALISED HOPES: Exiled People to Jesus People
  • 5. ENDURING HOPES: Last Days to Last Day

EVEN BETTER THAN THE REAL THING? – A Hitch-hiker’s Guide to Postmodernism

Referring to all kinds of movies, songs, works of art, this traces the worldview journey taken in the west over the last 1000 years – it is necessarily brief and a birds-eye view, but it will hopefully provide a helpful introduction and map for understanding our so-called ‘postmodern’ world.

  • 1. Where have we come from?
  • 2. Where on earth are we?
  • 3. Where do we go from here?
