Public Lectures

Our mandate is to educate the whole people of God—and that includes the Christian community of Vancouver and beyond. We offer free public lectures by our own world-class faculty, and by visiting scholars, teachers, and authors from around the world.

We host two regular lecture series—Summer Lectures and the Laing Lectures—as well as special events throughout the year.

Most of our lectures are recorded and available as audio downloads through RegentAudio.com

Summer Lectures

In the Spring and Summer Sessions, we host lectures every week to highlight the research of our regular faculty and our visiting summer lecturers. All lectures are in the Regent College Chapel unless otherwise noted. Our lectures tend to draw large crowds, so plan to arrive early for a good seat.

Jesus in Space, Time, and History: Natural Theology & the Challenge of Talking about God

Ntwright_240

With N.T. Wright

This event is now sold out. Please feel free to sign up for the waitlist. If you are not able to obtain a ticket for this free event, we encourage you to try the stand-by line. Unfilled seats will be offered to those in the line 15 minutes before the start of the event on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you have already registered, please note that your ticket only guarantees you admission to the event if you arrive before 7 pm.

The question of how we talk about God has become more and more confused in today’s Western culture. Where might such a conversation start, and how might it proceed? Professor Wright argues for a fresh approach to locating Jesus within a Jewish understanding of space, time and history, opening up new possibilities.

This lecture is part of our 2019 Summer Evening Public Lecture Series.

Admission to this lecture is free of charge, but advance ticket reservation is required. 


On Tuesday, July 23 from 2–3:30 pm, the Regent College Bookstore will host an afternoon book signing with Professor Wright. This will be the only time he is available to sign books during his visit to Regent this summer. Find more details about the book signing event here.

Professor Wright will be teaching the class "Grappling with Galatians" from July 22–26, 2019 as part of our 2019 Summer Programs. Learn more at rgnt.net/summer.
