Beyond Black & White: Dr. Lee Camp in Perth

Laura & Lee Camp with their boysJune 26th- to July 1st EPYC is hosting respected Biblical Ethicist and author, Dr. Lee Camp.

“Lee Camp is a voice of sanity and insight in a world torn by competing extremism. He is someone I listen to and learn from regularly.”

Brian McLaren (Hauerwas, McLaren, Boyd and Gardiner’s thoughts on Lee below)

I personally feel that Lee Camp’s work is one of the most accessible articulations of the prophetic alternatives to the damaging black and whiteness of fundamentalism and the boring greyness of liberalism. I sometimes joke that it’s Lee’s fault I was awarded the Donald Groom Peace Fellowship for founding EPYC and seek the kingdom while living in one of poorest areas of my city in Christian community. In contacting some friends and leaders I respect many are in agreement about the importance of Lee’s voice in today’s world:

Gregory A. Boyd“Lee Camp understands the humble nature of the Jesus-looking Kingdom and how it contrasts with post-Constantinian Christianity as profoundly as anyone I know. His book Mere Discipleship ranks as one of the best, if not the best, books on Kingdom discipleship I’ve ever read.”

– Dr. Gregory Boyd (Evangleical theologian, Senior Pastor and author of “Myth of a Christian Nation”)

Lee Camp fan, Stanley Hauerwas“We can laugh because Camp helps us see that the gospel, the good news, gives us good work that is a check against taking ourselves to seriously… Camp provides an account of discipleship that counters the widespread assumption that what it means to be a Christian is believing twenty absurd propositions before breakfast.”

-Stanley Hauerwas (Ethicst named “Amercia’s Best Theologian” by Time magazine)

Lee Camp fan, Brian McLaren“Lee Camp is a voice of sanity and insight in a world torn by competing extremism. He is someone I listen to and learn from regularly.”

– Brian McLaren (Christian Activist, Author, and Innovative thinker and leader)

Lee Camp fan, Darryl Gardiner“Lee Camp’s ‘Mere Discipleship’ was one of the most formative books I have read in the last few years. He gives a brilliant Biblical apologetic for “the way of Jesus” with amazing insights into history and the current situations we face. Lee Camp should be read and listened to.”

– Darryl Gardiner (Regular on New Zealand TV, former head of Youth For Christ and internationally sought after communicator)
