A Lecture I'd Like to Attend but Cannot Due to Schedule

BCS Special Lecture

Dr. Peter Jensen, the Archbishop of Sydney (Anglican), will be speaking to students and staff in a BCS special lecture on Monday 14 December from 12:30–1:30pm in the sanctuary at the Downtown Campus of Bethlehem Baptist Church. All are welcome to attend.

Dr. Jensen was elected as Archbishop in 2001. His leadership of the Sydney Diocese has been marked by his passion for theological education and his deep commitment to Reformed evangelical theology. Dr. Jensen is the author of a number of books, including The Future of Jesus, a book based on a ABC lecture series aimed at challenging unbelievers to consider the impact of Jesus and, more centrally, to consider the claims of Jesus in the gospels. Audio from Archbishop Jensen, including a conference hosted by The Proclamation Trust where he spoke alongside Pastor John in 2003, is available here.

Archbishop Jensen, alongside Pastor John and evangelical leaders from all over the world, will be meeting at Bethlehem for a series of closed-door meetings the week of 14 December. These 20 evangelical leaders are meeting to compose the guiding document for the Lausanne Conference on World Evangelization which will convene in Capetown, South Africa in October of 2010.

I just got back from it. Unless you wanted to talk to him person-to-person, you didn't miss a great deal.

He spoke briefly concerning his conversion then spoke primarily on hermeneutics, and then on homosexuality and the church.

I'm more interested in what he and twenty other evangelicals from around the world are doing in Minneapolis.
