Why is it that so many Christians, particularly in the United States, are suspicious of environmental activism? Through beautiful images that evoke America’s western mythology, a magnificent musical score, and a narrative of Biblical proportions, Cowboy and Preacher explores what the Bible has to say about caring for creation. Following the screening, we will hear responses and reflections from a distinguished panel.

Panelists: Lord Rowan Williams, Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge Dr Jonathan Chaplin, former Director of the Kirby Laing Institute for Christian Ethics Dr Hilary Marlow, Director of Studies, Girton College; Affiliated Lecturer, Faculty of Divinity Will Fraser, filmmaker and director of Cowboy and Preacher

Co-sponsors: Faraday Institute for Science and Religion Jubilee Centre Von Hügel Institute Kirby Laing Institute for Christian Ethics Cambridge Institute on Religion & International Studies
