Being Biblical, Being Broken and Blessed

Part of the "Bible Opened for All" series. A group of inspiration speakers explore if we can discover an inclusive faith for all.


In this year’s Autumn Education Series we seek to engage deeply with the Christian Scriptures, in the context of our 21st century world and our lives.
Can we discover an inclusive vision of the kingdom where all are welcome irrespective of age, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and ability? How can we understand and truthfully interpret a Bible which has so often been used to support prejudice, exclude and condemn? In these lectures a varied and challenging group of speakers seek to engage deeply with the Christian Scriptures, in the context of our 21st century world and lives and grapple with some of the most difficult issues of Biblical interpretation which continue to divide the Church.

Frances Young OBE, was head of the Department of Theology, and later Pro-Vice-Chancellor of the University of Birmingham, Methodist minister and Fellow of the British Academy. She is a highly acclaimed academic theologian and combines her knowledge of the New Testament and Christianity in its formative centuries with her experience as a mother of a son living with disability. She has written several books, and has contributed with distinction to the exploration of the relationship between Christianity and Disability.
