FSI Presents – Dr. John Dickson

Join us in celebrating FSI’s 30th Anniversary as we present

Dr. John Dickson,

author of The Doubter’s Guide to the Bible 

Dr. Dickson will discuss his new documentary series For the Love of God: Why the Church is Better and Worse Than You Ever Imagined. View the trailer here.

John’s story is eclectic. Starting out as a professional singer-songwriter, he now works as an author, speaker, historian, pastor, and media presenter. He was the Founding Director of the Centre for Public Christianity (2007-17).  He teaches a course on the Historical Jesus at the University of Sydney, Australia, and researches the origins of Christianity in the Roman empire. He is an Honorary Research Associate at the University of Sydney, and during 2017-19 he is a Visiting Academic in the Faculty of Classics at the University of Oxford. In all that he does, whether in the media or the church, creative or academic, he strives to be a public advocate for the Christian faith in doubting times.
