I’ve just seen the following notice posted by Margaret Barker on her website:


Temple Theology led by Margaret Barker

Temple Theology is a fast growing new way of doing biblical study, rediscovering the roots of Christianity in the world of the Jerusalem temple. In this one week non-residential school we shall explore how temple symbolism, belief and practice shaped Christian faith and culture. Temple Theology is changing how we understand Christian origins and the Christian relationship to Judaism.

Dates: 8th–12th August 2011, 10am–4pm each day. Four sessions each day.

Venue: Borrowash Methodist Church, near Derby (3 miles west of Junction 25 of the M1). There is ample parking nearby.

Cost: £12.00 per day or £50.00 for the complete week. In aid of Borrowash Methodist Church.

Booking: Places are limited. Please book via the ‘email Margaret Barker’ link on this website and pay on the first day.

You will need to bring a Bible and a packed lunch. Hot and cold drinks will be provided.


If at all possible, this is definitely something you want to be in on!  I don’t know what kind of audience she is targeting with this, but it would be a wonderful opportunity to learn directly from Margaret herself all about her ideas and methods surrounding her “Temple Theology.” Too bad its not this August…anyone interested will have to wait a whole year!
