Suzanne McDonald presents: "Re-Presenting Election"
What are your first thoughts when someone mentions 'the doctrine of election'? Are you eager to talk about it, or do you groan inwardly and wonder where to begin? Our Reformed tradition has had a great deal to say about election over the centuries, often to explain and defend our approach in relation to alternative views. This is important, but it does mean that we sometimes focus on only a few of the many rich themes that scripture associates with this important concept. It also means that we often get into intractable arguments very quickly! In this lecture I will suggest an approach to election that helps us to root our Reformed priorities in the bigger scriptural picture, with the hope that it might also help us to relate the doctrine to our discipleship and worship in fresh ways.
