Professor Michael S Northcott will be Pilgrim's Visiting Preacher for seven weeks
from late March to early May. Activist, author, and priest of the Episcopal Church of Scotland, Michael
has written one of the few major theological interpretations of climate change, A Moral Climate: The
Ethics of Global Warming (Darton, Longman and Todd 2007). This publication follows his popular
earlier works, The Environment and Christian Ethics (CUP 1996), and An Angel Directs the Storm:
Apocalyptic Religion and American Empire (I B Tauris 2005).
Each of these publications reflects Michael's major interest which is the interface
between theological ethics and the human sciences.
As a popular speaker Michael has been guest lecturer at the G8 Summit Fringe in
Edinburgh, the Greenbelt Festival and the Edinburgh International Book Festival. He is also a trustee
of the Fair Trade organisation, Traidcraft, and is Canon Theologian of Liverpool Cathedral.
Michael will also be guest at the three evening sessions of the Symposium to be
held on the evenings of 28, 29, and 30 April. He will also speak at the March meeting of the SA
Presbytery on Saturday the 29thMarch.
The visit of Professor Northcott is being funded by Pilgrim Church and the SA Synod's
Uniting Foundation. .
