COMMON DREAMS is an alliance of Australian and New Zealand kindred organisations which promote the study, discussion and implementation of Progressive Christian and other progressive religious streams of thought and action. Its principal method of pursuing these objectives is through its major “Common Dreams” conferences (see video on this page) which are held each three years plus the promotion of visits by leading international scholars and the sale and distribution of the materials that result from these activities.
The Common Dreams alliance will sponsor a speaking tour of New Zealand and Australia during September 2014 by Professor Bernard Brandon Scott during which he will feature as the keynote speaker at a progressive religious conference in NZ. Brandon Scott is Darbeth Distinguished Professor of New Testament at the Phillips Theological Seminary, University of Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA. A riveting speaker, he is a charter member of the Jesus Seminar and the author of several important books including Hear Then The Parable, Re-Imagining The World and The Trouble With Resurrection.
