Darrell Falk & Todd Wood – The Fool and the Heretic

Darrell Falk & Todd Wood – The Fool and the Heretic

April 28, 2020 at 2:20 pm

Darrell Falk and Todd Wood discuss the story about how two scientists with very different views on Creationism came together to write the book The Fool and the Heretic at the Center for Faith and Culture.

The Fool and the Heretic is a deeply personal story told by two respected scientists who hold opposing views on the topic of origins, share a common faith in Jesus Christ, and began a sometimes-painful journey to explore how they can remain in Christian fellowship when each thinks the other is harming the church. To some in the church, anyone who accepts the theory of evolution has rejected biblical teaching and is therefore thought of as a heretic. To many outside the church as well as a growing number of evangelicals, anyone who accepts the view that God created the earth in six days a few thousand years ago must be poorly educated and ignorant–a fool. Todd Wood and Darrel Falk know what it’s like to be thought of, respectively, as a fool and a heretic. This book shares their pain in wearing those labels, but more important, provides a model for how faithful Christians can hold opposing views on deeply divisive issues yet grow deeper in their relationship to each other and to God.

Michael Bird – Bird’s Eye View of Philippians

Michael Bird – Bird’s Eye View of Philippians

December 5, 2019 at 4:15 pm

Michael Bird, Lecturer of Theology at Ridley College in Australia, presented a detailed overview of the Book of Philippians from his findings while co-authoring a book, The New Testament in Its World, with N.T. Wright.

Michael describes himself as a “biblical theologian” who endeavours to bring together biblical studies and systematic theology. He believes that the purpose of the church is to “gospelize,” that is to preach, promote, and practice the Gospel-story of the Lord Jesus Christ. Remembered by students for his mix of outlandish humour and intellectual rigor, he makes theology both entertaining and challenging.
