In Conversation With… Richard Burridge

Sunday 14 January at 6:30pm, with optional drinks at 6pm before the talk begins

The Revd Canon Professor Richard A. Burridge is an internationally recognised biblical scholar, ethicist, theologian and social commentator, who has published over a dozen books and hundreds of other articles or publications. He was Dean of King’s College London from 1993 to 2019. Now a Research Fellow in the Department of Theology at the University of Manchester, and a Visiting Professor at Virginia Theological Seminary, USA, he devotes his time to research and writing, as well as his public ministry lecturing and undertaking theological training for clergy and lay people. In addition to his academic work his best-selling Four Gospels, One Jesus? has made biblical scholarship accessible to a wider audience. His academic scholarship and his contribution to the life of the world-wide church was recognised when he was awarded the 2013 Ratzinger Prize by Pope Francis, the first non-Roman Catholic to receive this prestigious prize.

Richard will engage in conversation about his work as a scholar of the Gospels. Talking through his own biography, he will explore his work on understanding the Gospels as ‘biography’, shedding light on our understanding of Jesus.

All are welcome to join us at the In Conversation… Sunday services.
