Faculty Roundtable is a time to get to know members of the teaching team at Regent College—full-time faculty, visiting professors, and friends.

This week’s discussion features Dr. David Bebbington and Dr. Paul Williams considering shifts in how evangelicals regard the Bible. In his 1989 book, Evangelicalism in Modern Britain: A History from the 1730s to the 1980s, Dr. Bebbington identified four qualities which mark evangelical convictions. Known as the “Bebbington quadrilateral,” these include biblicism, crucicentrism, conversionism, and activism. In this discussion, Dr. Bebbington and Dr. Williams will discuss whether, and to what extent, biblicism is still a defining contour of evangelicalism.

Dr. David Bebbington is Professor of History at the University of Stirling. Dr. Paul Williams is Research Professor of Marketplace Theology and Leadership at Regent College, and Chief Executive of the British and Foreign Bible Society.

You are invited to bring your lunch and join us in Room 100 for a lively discussion.
