Theologian to speak at Victoria

Theologian to speak at Victoria

The distinguished British theologian. Canon Hugh Montefiore, will be visiting Victoria Universitv from July 11 to July 17. He Is wellknown for his books "Awkward questions on Christian love" and "Beyond reasonable doubt." He has also contributed to the well-known books. "God, Sex and War" and "Soundings"

At present Canon Montefiore is vicar of the Cambridge University church. He has been invited to New Zealand by the university chaplains, whose aim is to bring out as many well-known theologians to this country as possible. He will lecture on religious and Christian thought, the very nature of faith itself in relation to Jesus Christ, and the vexed question of numerality and the very existence of the Church which has come under such radical criticism in recent years. He will also conduct as many open discussions as can be arranged.

The aim of the canon's visit is to help clarify Christianity in the light of new situations, and to restore religious perspective in a world in which religion is on the decline. He will attempt to make people aware of the changes which have taken place in the church in the last ten years

He will be visiting the remainder of the New Zealand universities after his stay at Victoria.
