Posted by Sophia Akouo, 30 May 2017

Kirsty Birkett's St Antholin Lecture from this year's Church Society conference, on Reformation Epistemology.

Dr Kirsty Birkett is lecturer in philosophy and ethics at Oak Hill College, London and on the Council of Church Society. At this year’s St Antholin Lecture, Kirsty gave us a fascinating and insightful lecture about the impact of sin on the mind. How is that fallen minds can know anything accurately, let alone a holy God? The Reformation brought not only reform of doctrine and Church but also how we think.

Kirsty highlighted in particular the work of Martin Luther and John Calvin who used Scripture to reform how we think about God.

The talk is about 40 mins long and includes a Q & A session at the end.

Sophia Akouo is an ordinary Anglican churchgoer who enjoys listening to good talks.
