Welcome to Tyndale Fellowship, Philosophy of Religion section.

The TF Philosophy of Religion Section (TFPR) contributes to the work of the Tyndale Fellowship by bringing philosophical ideas and rigorous intellectual argument to bear on religion in general and on the Christian faith in particular. Please browse through our web pages and sign up for our e-mail list by contacting our secretary, Dr Joseph Diekemper (, so that we can keep you informed of our activities. The Tyndale Fellowship (see ) is a Fellowship of Christians engaged in multi-disciplinary Biblical research. Its sections include ‘Old Testament’, ‘New Testament’, ‘Christian Doctrine’, ‘Biblical Theology’, ‘Philosophy of Religion’, ‘Biblical Archaeology’ and ‘Ethics and Social Theology’. It aims to promote research into the Christian faith. To this end it organises a Plenary Conference each three years, study groups for the individual sections in the other years and occasional lectures and workshops when thought appropriate. Tyndale Fellowship has its home in Tyndale House, Selwyn Gardens, Cambridge. Tyndale House Library is one of three libraries in the world that are dedicated to the scholarly study of the Bible (the others being the Ecole Biblique in Jerusalem and the Pontifical Biblical Institute in Rome). The Library was established as an independent library to give scholars the tools to provide a firm academic foundation for Biblical research. The large world-wide community of scholars who use it attests to the importance of its collection.
