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: Protestantism without Reformation — Bonhoeffer’s View of the North American Churches

David_s_robinson

With David S. Robinson

Many North American Christians see themselves as heirs of the Reformation legacy, for good and ill. But is such a perception accurate? 

Bring your lunch and listen as Dr. David S. Robinson presents Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s 1939 essay “Protestantism without Reformation,” particularly his identification of the social differences that mark a “nation of refugees.” The essay offers astute observations—Bonhoeffer has been called a “theological Tocqueville”—on individual freedoms, church unity, and the relation of denominationalism to racial segregation. It also appeals for both rooted historical consciousness and global theological exchange, critical components to a vibrant church “confession” for the twenty-first century.

The lecture will be followed by a brief Q & A period.
