Dr. Lawrence Turner, a noted theologian from Newbold College in England, was the first presenter at the inaugural Sanitas Lectureship series hosted by Boulder Seventh-day Adventist Church in Colorado. An expert in biblical studies and principal lecturer emeritus, Turner stated that “biblical narratives convey messages through human experience.”

Turner prefers to speak of the Old Testament as the First Testament, and explained that the Bible is a product of the Semitic mind. Turner said that “when you want to talk about profound matters, you tell a story . . . Through stories, we communicate the human aspect of our relationship with God.” The audience appeared to enjoy Dr. Turner’s uniquely witty and insightful interpretations of Old Testament themes that have made him a popular speaker for a wide variety of audiences around the world. Read the full story
