Catalyst Live 2014 is almost here!

We’re so looking forward to welcoming Miroslav Volf to the events. He’s one of the world’s pre-eminent theologians, an award-winning author and a brilliant commentator on culture.

In a new venture for us, we’ve also filmed another two wonderful contributors, neither of whom travel outside of the US any more.

In Cincinnati, Catalyst Live talked at length to Walter Brueggemann, one of the all-time great Old Testament scholars, while in New Mexico we chewed the fat with Fr Richard Rohr. Both were fascinating to talk to, and at Catalyst Live you can see our exclusive interviews with them.

And our contributor list goes on from there. We’ll be joined by:

  • A former Director General of the Met Office talking about Christians, science and climate change  
  • An Islamics specialist exploring how morality fits into apologetics
  • The principal of an Oxford theology college examining whether sport is inherently religious
  • Another theology college principal exploring the theology of Jazz, through live music
  • A Radio 2 poet in residence performing her funny, poignant poems about faith, God and life
  • A Lithuanian theologian talking about happiness and single people in the Church
  • One of the founders of the Damaris Trust, which leads the way on studies in film and faith
  • And many more stimulating Christian speakers and thinkers from around the world


For £29.95, including lunch, we don’t believe you’ll get a better offer in October!

Come to Catalyst Live. Give your brain a work-out.
