He travelled to Germany to complete world-first research on diamond colour centres and has now received an award to continue his studies. “Learning how nature works does not diminish God’s awe, it deepens it,” says Avondale alumnus Dr Lachlan Rogers. He explains more about his research, and his thoughts on science and faith, in this question and answer.
“Accidental academic” Dr Carole Ferch-Johnson’s examination of the way the early church represented Christ and His mission through the media of human hands and feet has implications for how we should share the gospel.

Following Jesus: it is what every person influenced by Jesus Christ is challenged to do. I’m still learning to follow Jesus more closely. The new book by Avondale alumnus Dr Peter Roennfeldt will help me be more of who I want to be—and who He calls me to be.
Dr Peter Roennfeldt drew on his ministry, evangelism, church-planting and teaching experience, much of it across cultures, to write his new book. But his close study of the life and ministry of Jesus may have influenced him even more. He talked with Signs Publishing Book Editor Nathan Brown about Following Jesus.
