The following presentation was given at Booth College of Mission in New Zealand on 27 November 2014 as part of our “Thought Matters” Seminars. These seminars are a monthly gathering for theological reflection and discussion hosted by Booth College of Mission.
This presentation was prepared by Major David Noakes on the topic ‘The Body in Biblical Terms’
The human body is on display everywhere. Does it matter how the body is imagined and spoken of? Do Christians differ in how we think of the human body?
Major Noakes explores some common Christian perceptions of the human body. He will not only look at doctrine, but will consider how contextual and systematic theologies have historically thought of and with the body.
Somewhat of a send-off, this will be Major Noakes’ last presentation before becoming the Divisional Commander of Fiji.
