The RZIM Oxford Summer School is an intense week of training in evangelism and apologetics, conducted by the speaking team of RZIM.

Trinity, Infinity and Questions of Identity | 8th – 13th July 2018


May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all”. (2 Corinthians 13:14)

In his well-known benediction, Paul affirms the utterly unique and defining feature of Christian theology: that God is Triune in nature (one being of three persons). Yet despite it being a foundational part of doctrine, many believers find it difficult to understand not only the idea of a divine communion, but its deep significance for all of humanity. Indeed, the way in which we answer some of the biggest questions of life – about personal identity, meaning and morality – is directly influenced by our view of ultimate reality. That is why J. I. Packer reminds us that it is so important to understand the nature of God, because “The Trinity is the basis of the gospel, and the gospel is a declaration of the Trinity in action”. Christians are invited to share in this divine fellowship, so that we might witness to others by echoing the abounding love that is the very essence of our creator.

The Oxford Summer School explores what it means to follow a Trinitarian God and how believers can respond to some of the common objections to the Christian faith. The week-long apologetics conference, which is being relaunched for 2018 in the new surroundings of Merton College, will feature members of the Zacharias Trust team examining questions of identity, morality and the nature of God. The event is designed to help and equip followers to be more effective in sharing and defending their beliefs, whilst also growing in faith.
