After Dispensationalism: Reading the Bible for the End of the World
A Biblical and Theological Studies Symposium
Location: In-Person: Howison Room, Reimer Student Life Centre, Providence Campus | Online: via Zoom
Presenter: Dr. Brian P. Irwin, Assoc. Prof of Old Testament at Knox College, University of Toronto
Panelists: Dr. Tim Perry (Prof. of Theology), Dr. Joshua Coutts (Assoc. Prof. of New Testament), Dr. Patricia Janzen-Loewen (Adjunct Faculty, History of Christianity) and Dr. Gavin Hall (Assoc. Prof. of Christian Ministries)
Brief Description: Christians’ fixation on the end times is not new. While eschatological speculation has sometimes resulted in distraction or despair, scripture does speak about the end. So what does God most want us to know and do with prophecy? A forthcoming book by Brian P. Irwin, with Tim Perry, sympathetically yet critically sketches the history, belief, and concerns of one of the most influential end-times systems – “dispensationalism.” This event will feature a brief introduction to the issues raised by the book from Brian Irwin, followed by a panel discussion and question time.
