Duncan Macpherson lecture, 10.3.15

Unfortunately I cannot get to this, but it will be well-worth attending, as Duncan Macpherson is a good speaker and knew Michael Prior very well:

Remembering Michael Prior: Palestinian Rights, the Bible, Zionism and Colonialism A Lecture by Dr Duncan Macpherson

Michael Prior

Michael Prior

Father Michael Prior was a priest of the Vincentian Congregation, Professor of Biblical Theology at Saint Mary’s College (now Saint Mary’s University, Twickenham), liberation theologian and a well-known and frequently controversial figure in the Catholic Church in Britain.

2014 marked the tenth anniversary of Michael’s death. A memorial volume, A Living Stone: Selected Essays and Addresses, Michael Prior CM, was published in 2006 and reissued in paperback also in 2014. This anniversary has been marked by a further volume: Remembering Michael Prior Ten Years On: Selected Essays and Addresses. Both books contain examples of his writings and lectures not otherwise generally available. The launch of this volume in Scotland will be marked by a lecture to be held in the ground floor seminar room at 4 Professor Square in the University of Glasgow at 5.00pm on Tuesday 10th of March – all welcome.  A poster is available here.

I was privileged to be invited to speak on The Bible and Colonialism: a moral critique at a memorial conference for Michael Prior last year, and my lecture is to be published in this year’s Living Stones Yearbook.
