Dr. John Frame to Present Reformation Lectures
On October 24-25, 2011, Covenant will host the annual Reformation Lectures, given this year by Dr. John Frame. A professor of theology and philosophy for more than 30 years, Dr. Frame is currently J.D. Trimble Chair of Systematic Theology and Philosophy at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, and is known for his prolific writing, including such books as Doctrine of the Knowledge of God, Apologetics to the Glory of God, and Doctrine of God.
Dr. Kelly Kapic, professor of theological studies at Covenant, says that the Reformation Lectures “are our attempt, as an institution, to allow continued exploration of our history, with the distinct desire not simply to learn about the past, but also to allow the past to inform our present and future.
“Therefore, with this in mind, for these special lectures we attempt to find speakers who are committed to the spirit of the Reformation, but who see that tradition not as dead but as alive, continually reforming and guiding the Church."
Dr. Kapic continues: "Dr Frame has been a significant figurehead in American Reformed theological education over the last thirty years or so. He is someone who shows both great appreciation for the Reformed tradition and also a willingness to test that tradition against the holy scriptures, and this makes him an ideal speaker for our Reformation Day lectures."
