The Keswick Lectures '17 - Trusting the Scriptures Today

Pete Williams - Spurgeon was right: you no more need to defend the Bible than defend a lion. However, many people in the general population never encounter the lion, only its bad reputation. In the church, the lion is often caged. Amongst scholars the lion is cunning, and they mistake their continued survival as a sign of its weakness. In this lecture we look at how we can promote the Bible amongst three broad groups of people: the general population, the church and scholars and how to respond to the particular barriers, intellectual or otherwise, which each group puts up.

Length: 59mins
