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.

Lunchtime Lecture: Retelling the Biblical Chronology in China

Grace_headshot

With Grace Hui Liang

Join us for this special lunch time lecture, in which Dr. Grace Hui Liang will offer two case studies of biblical commentaries from the Late Qing Dynasty. The examples of Karl F. A. Gutzlaff (1803-1851), a German Lutheran missionary, and Rev. Ho Tsun-Sheen (1817-1871), a Chinese Protestant theologian and biblical commentator, will illuminate early examples of a Chinese biblical hermeneutic and the ways the hermeneutic traditions in Chinese culture have affected the reception of Christian scriptures among Chinese converts.

Dr. Liang was a participant in the Regent College-Chinese Mainland University Joint Training Program for PhD students in 1999-2000. She now teaches biblical courses at the School of Humanities, Zhejiang University, and is also a core member of the Insitutite of Christianity and Cross-cultural Studies. Her main areas of research include Old Testament wisdom literature, Chinese biblical interpretation and theological studies, and early Protestant missionary writings in China.

All are welcome to bring their lunch, enjoy the lecture, and engage in a brief Q & A period afterward with time permitting.
