Summer School: The Word and its Witnesses
THE WORD & ITS WITNESSES: Celebrating the Bible and Great Works of Christian Literature
Oxford in the summer is a great place to be: narrow cobbled streets, punts on the river, walks in the meadows, ancient halls of learning, international visitors, Shakespeare plays performed in college gardens, University ceremonies the 'dreaming spires'. And, set in the heart of Oxford, there is a Christian community, waiting to welcome you to its Summer School.
2011 marks the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James (or 'Authorized') Version of the Bible. So we at Wycliffe will be celebrating this great publishing event by learning about the Bible's history-from its first formation, through its various translations, to our task in the present day of spreading its message. Yet we will also be celebrating the publication of some great literary works, each inspired by the Bible: from Bunyan to Baxter, from J.C. Ryle to Bonhoeffer.
With some dramatic presentations on the lives of Bonhoeffer and G.K. Chesterton, as well as all the opportunities of enjoying Oxford's rich history (in the steps of Wesley and C.S. Lewis), Wycliffe's Summer School promises to be a real treat for all Christians eager to learn and grow. Come and join us in July!
