‘Double Listening’: John Stott on Cultural Translation and Apologetics Thursday, 13 November 2014 from 18:30 to 21:00 (GMT)
Venue: All Souls Langham Place, London
Lecturer: Alister McGrath
For John Stott, ‘double listening’ – to the word and the world – was essential to Christian mission. It lay at the heart of his vision for preaching Scripture, training leaders, and making disciples. Our submission to God’s word and our location in God’s world mean that paying attention to both is crucial for authentic Christianity.
In this year’s John Stott London Lecture – organised by representatives of All Souls Langham Place, A Rocha, Langham Partnership International, and the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity – Alister McGrath will explain the idea of ‘double listening’, explore how Stott himself applied it, and reflect on its wider importance for handling Scripture and engaging with friends and colleagues about the Christian faith.
Alister McGrath is Andreas Idreos Professor of Science and Religion at the University of Oxford. A scholar of international renown and the author of many highly acclaimed books, Alister is also the President of the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics, and serves as associate priest in a group of Church of England village parishes in the Cotswolds.
