Penance: Tina Beattie on Good Friday
|Share in His Passion by following BBC's coverage of Holy Week|
Some kind soul left this comment in my com-box for the last post. Professor Tina Beattie, our favourite ideologically-motivated, pin-up dartboard theologian will be presenting a programme on Good Friday for Radio 4. Unsurprisingly, the BBC's coverage of Holy Week looks less than inspirational...
'Just after 3pm, as Christians mark the hour of Christ's suffering in words of prayer, readings and music, BBC Radio 4 presents Good Friday Liturgy. Professor Tina Beattie, Director of the Digby Stuart Research Centre for Catholic Studies at Roehampton University, visits Jerusalem and what may have been the actual places of trial, suffering and resurrection in the story of Christ's Passion.'
"Join me, Tina Beattie, in the Holy Land, where I'll be tracing the footsteps of Jesus - the places where he lived, walked, died and established the roots of gnosticism, liberalism and campaign for female ordination on Mary Magdalen..."
