Wednesday, 1 July, 7:30 pm8:30 pm AEST

Whitley College invites you to join us for a series of online conversations which will take place on Facebook Live.

Watch on Facebook

Professor Mark Brett and Assoc Professor Keith Dyer together present ‘Theologies and Practices of Love’. Mark teaches in the area of Hebrew Bible and ethics, and has a lifelong interest in the cultural contexts of education and biblical studies. Keith is passionate about encouraging open, analytical and interactive group study of the Bible.

Explore themes of love of neighbour and enemy, sexuality and intimacy, election and covenant and their ethical implications, within the cultural contexts of the ancient world. The relevance of these themes within modern and postmodern societies will also be discussed, with some reference to contemporary visual arts and music.

In conversation with Darrell Jackson, Mark and Keith will talk about how the study of love in antiquity is relevant to the current challenging context. This event will give students and those interested in studying at Whitley an opportunity to engage with Mark and Keith, and ask questions.

‘Theologies and Practices of Love’ will be part of the semester 2 2020 program at Whitley College.
