Southern Seminary News

A couple of happenings this week @ Southern Seminary I would like to mention that might be of interest to you . . .

Tomorrow (Tuesday, September 5), Dr. Frank Page, president of the Southern Baptist Convention, will be speaking in chapel. Chapel service starts at 10:00 a.m., and if you want to listen to the audio, you will find his audio posted here. You can also receive the chapel messages via podcast by clicking here. Dr. Page is also the pastor of First Baptist Church Taylors, SC. You can also view his “President’s Page” here. Also, this Wednesday (September 6) there will be a panel discussion on Evangelism & Apologetics in the Heritage Hall which will begin at 10:00 a.m. The panel includes Dr. Mark Coppenger (moderator), Dr. Bruce Ware (evidentialism), Dr. Ted Cabal (eclecticism), and Dr. Stephen Wellum (presuppositionalism). The panel discussion be deal with the different apologetical approaches and how they relate to our evangelistic encounters. My guess is that the audio of the discussion will also be made available in the future (check here). I am looking forward to this discussion as there is much I need to learn about the different schools of apologetics.

I am excited about the line-up of speakers and guest lectures. As the events continue to near, I hope to make you aware of what is happening and the resources that would be available. Previous SBTS News: Southern Seminary News 08.02.06

It is interesting that the faculty in the division of apologetics and worldview, to my knowledge, all hold to the integrated approach that will be defended by Cabal. (So do all of us in the doctoral program).

If you want to really dig into the various approaches grab Boa and Bowman's massive book on apologetics (probably in the textbook tunnel for any apologetics class). Its worth reading.

Alex,

From what I understand, there are not evidentialists in the bunch. As far as all holding to the integrated approach, I cannot comment. Maybe that will be asked in the panel discussion. It would have been good if Dr. Parker could be there for the discussion . . .
