Academy - May 11, 2012

Join us on Friday, May 11 at 7:30 p.m. when Dr. Riddlebarger concludes his class on The Christian Faith.  Classes will resume in September.

“The Christian Faith offers a fine, comprehensive companion to a number of recent systematic theologies. Crisply written, scripturally informed throughout, distinctively evangelical and Reformed, conversant with classic as well as contemporary Christian authors—Horton’s study is an outstanding contribution that will richly nourish Christian pilgrims on their way toward the consummation of Christ’s kingdom.” — Cornelis P. Venema, President, Mid-America Reformed Seminary

Friday, January 21 -- Dr. J.V. Fesko

Join us on Friday, January 21 at 7:30 p.m. when the Academy and Author's forum resumes with a special guest lecture by Dr. J.V. Fesko.  Dr. Fesko will lecture on his new book Word, Water, and Spirit: A Reformed Perspective on Baptism.

Word, Water, and Spirit: A Reformed Perspective on Baptism is a comprehensive treatment of the doctrine of baptism that includes a survey of the history of the doctrine, a biblical theological study of the subject, as well as a systematic theological construction of the doctrine. The survey of the history of the doctrine covers the patristic church through the present day. The biblical theological survey covers baptism as new creation, covenant judgment, and eschatological judgment. And finally, the systematic construction covers baptism as a means of grace, as a sacrament, baptism proper, recipients, and its relationship to the doctrine of the church.

Dr. Fesko is a minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. He was ordained as a church planter in 1998 and was installed as a pastor in 2003, thus serving in pastoral ministry for over ten years. He has also taught systematic theology for Reformed Theological Seminary for over eight years as a part-time professor. He has served on two committees appointed by the General Assembly of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. His present research interests include the integration of biblical and systematic theology, soteriology, ecclesiology, and sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Reformed theology.  Currently Dr. Fesko is the Academic Dean and Associate Professor of Systematic Theology at Westminster Seminary in Escondido, California.

After the lecture there will be a time for questions and answers, fellowship and refreshments.  As always the lectures are free of charge.
