The Denis Duncan Lecture 2018


Discipleship as Relearning Self and World – a healing vision of human life

The Rev Dr. Doug Gay: Lecturer in Practical Theology at the University of Glasgow

The lecture takes as its starting point Hans K√ľng’s famous affirmation that “the kingdom is creation healed” and explores ways to integrate the theological concepts of salvation, discipleship and sanctification with the language of healing, therapy and growth which has wider cultural currency in western societies today.

It considers how current widespread interest in discipleship across church traditions can be developed and revised, so as to save the concept from seeming out of reach of ‘mere Christianity’ and use it instead to promote an integrated ‘everyday’ vision of healthy human development.

Followed by panel discussion with Prof Jim McManus, Public Health director and LSE lecturer, and Rev David Hutchinson, Chaplain to the University of Aberdeen
