Southern Seminary News
As the Fall semester of school is less than two weeks away, I thought I'd mention some news around Southern Seminary worth noting. 1. Some of the papers from the recent Southern Baptist Journal of Theology (SBJT) is now online. Be sure to check out Dr. Schreiner's Preaching and Biblical Theology. The theme for this publication is Biblical Theology. Interestingly enough, we recent had this discussion last week here on P&P. Also, it is worth noting that Jason Meyer, good friend and mentor, recently finished his dissertation on the topic of Paul's understanding of the old covenant and the relationship between the old and new covenants. His advisors include Dr. Schreiner and Dr. Douglass Moo (among others). 2. This year's Mullin Lectures will have John MacArthur as the speaker for three consecutive days beginning on Reformation Day (October 31). This ought to be really good. 3. The chapel speakers for the Fall 2006 is not up yet, but Joshua Chavers shares that Dr. Frank Page (Sept. 5), C.J. Mahaney (Oct. 24,26), and Dr. Andrew Davis (Nov. 7) are among those who will be speaking this fall in chapel. 4. There will be a panel discussion about apologetics and evangelism on Wednesday, September 6, 2006 from 10:00-11:00 a.m. 5. If you are not a nerd and a student at SBTS, this may not be news for you, but it is for me. If you are wanting to make copies in the library, your VIN card is no longer accepted, and the cost to make copies is doubled ($.10 a copy). I know this may sound silly, but last night I spent $25 on copies of journal articles while doing research. Normally, I could have gotten the same number of copies for $12.50. Between making copies, I was consoling my other SBTS nerds as I was the first to break the news to them. That other $12.50 could be a dinner meal for me! Broke seminary students need some help. Occasionally, some great lectures or addresses are provided by faculty and visiting professors/guest speakers. I will try to keep you informed on any new announcements. In the meantime, you might want to check out the audio resources available from previous conferences, chapel messages, and special lectures. >>> Update: <<< In the meta of this post, you will see that Richard Bailey has shared that Ben Mitchell, associate professor of Bioethics and Contemporary Culture @ Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, will be speaking at the Norton Lectures on September 26-28, 2006.
