Wonderful Wednesdays - Session 1

Translating the Bible—Transforming the Faith

October 11 with Michael Hadley

In highlighting key issues of the 16th century Reformation, this talk will explore central aspects of the life and work of reformer Martin Luther (1483-1546). A central focus of the talk will be Luther’s approach to translating the Bible. As an interactive exercise, the audience will be invited to suggest a ‘new’ translation of St. John’s expression: “In the beginning was the Word.” 

Michael Hadley is Professor Emeritus of the University of Victoria, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, and past Fellow of  UVic’s Centre for Studies in Religion and Society. He is the author of several books. His previous presentations to Wonderful Wednesdays included “The Arc of Justice, ” a three-part series addressing issues of justice, evil, and forgiveness. He is a parishioner Christ Church Cathedral, Victoria.
