Overview

Lesslie Newbigin Summer Institute 2014

‘Getting to Know Lesslie Newbigin’

According to one scholar, the breadth and depth of Bishop Lesslie Newbigin's experience has been "scarcely paralleled." Indeed Newbigin's life experience is remarkable, and this is one of the reasons he is considered to be one of the top ten most influential Christian leaders in the 20th century. This week long seminar will explore his remarkable life in four stages: as a missionary in India, as a world Christian leader, as an Indian bishop, and as a prophet to Western culture. Each stage of his life will be examined in historical context with an eye to his tremendous significance for the 21st century.

Highlights of the week include:

  • Expert teaching on the life and work of Lesslie Newbigin
  • A closing banquet in a Cambridge college
  • Enjoy a historic walking tour of Cambridge
  • A punt trip to The Orchard Tea Garden in Grantchester
