Former Student’s Talk on 1859 Ulster Revival

Having carried out an examination of the place of prayer in the Ulster Revival of 1859 for her M.A. dissertation taken through KEDS, Donna Orr (now an Associate Tutor at the school) has been asked to give an historical talk on this revival for Libraries N.I. at the end of October. A good number of attendees is expected, and Donna requests our prayers, particularly that although this is essentially a historical talk, many will be encouraged to seek and pray for a similar revival in Northern Ireland at this time.

For any KEDS students who live in Northern Ireland and would like to attend, the talk takes place on Thursday, 24 October 2013 in Greenisland Library, Carrickfergus at 6.30 p.m. Admission is free, but booking is advised.

New Publications By Visiting KEDS Tutor

KEDS tutor Dr Derek Tidball has many books and other published works to his name (for details view his Faculty page). His most recent titles are The Message of Holiness: Restoring God’s Image(Nottingham, IVP, BST, 2010) and The Message of Women: Creation, Gender and Grace (Nottingham, IVP, BST 2012), which is due out in October.

But perhaps of special interest to students of theology at this time (considering the furore over Rob Bell’s Love Wins) would be his article; ‘Can Evangelicals be Universalists?’, published in Evangelical Quarterly 84.1 (2012).

Apart from his busy life as a writer and visiting tutor for KEDS, Derek is also visiting Scholar at Spurgeon’s College, London.

KEDS Tutor’s Family Enjoy BAFTA Success

KEDS tutor of theology Chris Lazenby, who also regularly contributes to this blog under the pen name Provocateur, and his wife Pam were overjoyed when their daughter Emma Lazenby won the Short Animation category during last weekend’s BAFTA awards (British Academy of Film and Television Arts, the British equivalent of the Oscars) held at Covent Garden, London, on 21 February. Emma’s short film, entitled Mother of Many, is based on her mother’s midwifery career spanning 27 years, during which time she delivered many, many babies in Silsden, Yorkshire. Chris and Pam are naturally very proud of Emma’s achievement and we congratulate them all.
