Far from being magnetic and appealing to society today, Christianity and the Christian church seem de-magnetised – an irrelevant, and even repellent presence. Why is this the case, and what does it mean for our lives and witness as followers of Jesus?
In this year’s John Stott London Lecture, Dan Strange will explore the ‘magnetic points’ common to human beings – the links between the longings and desires of our culture and the person of Jesus, showing how we can share Jesus in ways that engage our friends and colleagues with his life-changing and world-shaping magnetic power.
Dr Daniel Strange is College Director at Oak Hill College in London where he lectures on Culture, Religion and Public Theology. He is the author of Plugged In: Connecting your faith with what you watch, read, and play (published by The Good Book Company), and brings with him a wide reputation for teaching Christians how to think and speak about culture in a way that plugs in to a bigger and better reality – the story of King Jesus, and his cosmic plan for the world.
The John Stott London Lecture is organised by representatives of All Souls Langham Place, A Rocha, Langham Partnership, and the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity.
