Speaker Series

Thursday, November 17, 7:30-9:00 pm - Salem Multipurpose Room

Join us for a live simulcast event at Salem featuring world renowned author and retired Anglican bishop, N.T. Wright. Wright will share how the knowledge we have of God through Jesus Christ gives us the platform, not for an intellectual or practical take-over of the world on the model of normal ideologies or empires, but for the mission of God which is always through practical love, holiness, suffering and kingdom-work of every kind. The gospel is all about transforming communities. We hope you can join us for this lecture and discussion related to Wright’s book, Simply Good News: Why the Gospel is News and What Makes it Good.



N.T. Wright, Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of St. Andrews, has served in multiple positions within the Church of England: Bishop of Durham, Canon of Westminster Cathedral and Dean of Lichfield Cathedral as well as university posts at Oxford University, McGill University, and Cambridge University.

He holds honorary Doctor of Divinity degrees from numerous universities in the United States and Great Britain, including Durham University, Aberdeen University, and St. Mary’s Seminary and University in Baltimore. Wright teaches and speaks around the globe from Atlanta to Rome, from Harvard to the London School of Economics.

His published books number nearly 80 and range from biblical commentaries for “everyone” to academic works including the multi-volume Christian Origins and the Question of God Series.
