Public Theology Lectures

Lutheran World Federation (LWF), in collaboration with the Beyers Naudé Centre for Public Theology at Stellenbosch University and the Berlin Institute for Public Theology at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, have developed a series of lectures on public theology.

These are completely free to use, and are available in a number of formats:

Option 1 (for those who have relatively easy access to the internet): video lectures on YouTube.
Option 2 (for those with limited internet access): audio lectures, together with (where relevant) presentation slides in PDF format

Both formats include task a task sheet with questions for further discussion, and a table of time codes to match the presentation slides to the audio version of the lecture


The complete series of video lectures is available as a YouTube playlist. NB - this does not include the task sheets!

Individual lectures, including all formats and task sheets, can be found here:

I. Concepts of Public Theology

II. Doing public theology: Issues, agents and practices

III. Conclusion
