  1. Case Magazine

If you are a subscriber to Case magazine, you should by now have received your copy of Case #27 ‘Acts of God’, exploring natural disasters and the questions they pose for Christians. We hope you are enjoying it, and finding it thought-provoking. Unfortunately, due to clashes with other events, we have had to cancel the CASE Quarterly Seminar on this topic, advertised for August 29th.

Case #28 ‘Theology and the Future’ is now underway, and the content will reflect and extend the topics covered in this year’s New College Lectures. As well as containing articles from our 2011 Lecturers (see below), it will also include a discussion by Dr Rhys Bezzant on Theology and the Future of Worship and Dr Greg Clarke on Theology and the Future of the Bible.

Become a CASE Associate to receive your copy of Case #27 and the subsequent three issues of Case magazine. By becoming a CASE associate you will also receive discounts/free entry to CASE events and will have access to associates-only resources on our CASE website.
