THE ST. BARNABAS’ LECTURE SERIES features presentations by academics who use their expertise to offer informative, thought-provoking talks on issues and problems that are of interest to reflective Christians but which are usually not addressed in typical church services. Beginning in 2013, the series has provided audiences with lectures on subjects such as Islam and Christianity, the rationality of Christian belief, the problem of evil, Kierkegaard on faith, the problem of divine hiddenness, the early Christians’ understanding of Jesus, and spiritual experience and disciplines.
