Ideas That Matter is an online lecture series hosted by Regent College this academic year with the purpose of cultivating theological engagement with contemporary issues that are particularly relevant at this cultural moment.

For our Reading the Bible Right Now events, we will be welcoming theologians from inside as well as outside the Regent community to reflect on how they are reading the Bible during this season of uncertainty. They will be reflecting personally on questions such as: Where in scripture do you find hope, encouragement, rebuke, or a prophetic word in light of all that is happening in the world right now? How does your rootedness in scripture prepare you to engage with the issues of our day? How does our reading of scripture help us to read our cultural moment and vice versa?

We invite you to join us this week as we welcome Dr. George Guthrie, who will share about his own personal engagement with scripture in this season, followed by a time of Q&A.

Dr. George Guthrie is Professor of New Testament at Regent College and a highly sought-after lecturer, who has taught across North America, as well as in East Asia, the United Kingdom, Germany, South Africa, and Israel. Before coming to Regent in 2018, he taught for twenty-eight years at Union University in Jackson, Tennessee, where he served as the Benjamin W. Perry Professor of Bible and Fellow in the Ryan Center for Biblical Studies.
