Dead and Buried? - The Whitley Lecture 2018
Attending to the voice of the victim in the Old Testament and today

Date: Wednesday 6th June 2018

Time: 6.30pm

Venue: Blackburn, Lancs

Whether we are reading a modern news article about a violent atrocity, or one of the shocking Old Testament stories of violence, it is important that we ask certain questions of ourselves and of the written account. Whose interests are being served by the telling of this story? Whose voices are not being heard? Whose lives are considered worthy of grieving, and whose deaths are regarded as forgettable? What responsibility does reading this story place upon me? This lecture will aim to consider these questions and so provide some tools to assist us as we read Old Testament stories of violence.
