      Laing Lecture 2019: Alan J. Torrance

      We are delighted to announce that the 2019 London School of Theology Laing Lecture will be given by Alan J. Torrance, the chair of Systematic Theology at the University of St. Andrews and Director of the Logos Institute for Analytic and Exegetical Theology.Alan has published widely in the field of Christian doctrine and its implications. At present he is co-authoring a book on Søren Kierkegaard and Karl Barth with his son, Dr Andrew Torrance, for Eerdmans publishing company. He is also revising the Grider Winget lectures he gave in the USA along with the Frumentius lectures he gave in Ethiopia for publication with Baker Academic.Previously, he taught in King’s College London, the Universities of Otago, Aberdeen and Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany.About The Laing LectureThe London School of Theology Laing Lecture is a key part of the annual theological academic calendar, and this year the lecture will seek to provide insight and key thinking around the 'Priesthood of Christ'."Contemporary biblical scholarship has done a great deal to recover the importance of the priesthood of Christ. Yet, despite the fact that Calvin considered it so fundamental to the faith, the role of Christ as Priest has been peripheral in evangelical worship and has been effectively displaced by an exclusive emphasis on Christ as Lord and King. In this lecture we shall consider briefly why it fell from grace and explore how profoundly important it is for understanding the Gospel of Grace. We shall consider its importance for understanding the atonement, the life and mission of the church and last, but not least, how it stands to transform our prayer life."When: Tuesday 12 February 2019 at 19:30Where: Emmanuel Church, Northwood
