Gladstone’s Library established the Robinson-Spong Lectureship to enable progressive Christian theologians to deliver lectures and lead short courses at the Library. John Robinson and Jack Spong share many connections but maybe the most important is their passionate concern with the truth. It is a concern that we at Gladstone’s Library also share. We hope that by setting up this Lectureship and providing people with the opportunity to listen to some of the leading liberal theologians of our day, we will be continuing the work of two men who have inspired many people to look at their faith in a new light. Read more about John Robinson and Jack Spong here.
In order to bring leading liberal theologians to Gladstone’s Library, we need to be in a position to cover certain costs such as travel expenses and lecture fees so that we can keep our prices as low as possible and make these lectures and courses affordable to all.
