CBET seeks to promote the integration of the historical and theological study of the Bible with the study of ethics and systematic and philosophical theology, aiming to foster dialogue across the religious-secular divide whilst respecting faith commitments. This postgraduate study day aims to foster the aims of the Centre amongst postgraduate students from all areas of the Humanities.
