Forthcoming Tyndale House Events

The folk at Tyndale House have a good series of events planned this summer including:

1. The Bible and recent discoveries
Saturday 25 April 2009 at Tyndale House, Cambridge
Dr Martin Heide, University of Marburg
We live in an age when many discoveries are being made and when sensational and misleading claims about what has been discovered catch the public eye. This day conference with a leading expert, well experienced in evaluating and explaining discoveries for lay audiences, will seek to equip Christians to understand the historical basis of the Christian faith and to share that with others. Alongside a long involvement in church leadership in southern Germany, Dr. Heide has two doctorates in Semitic studies. He has published previously unknown material in Arabic, Ethiopic, and Hebrew, and carries out research in a large range of ancient languages.

10.30-12.15, The Old Testament and recent discoveries I
12.15-13.15, lunch (lunch provided for all who send booking with payment by 18 April)
