Three Covenant Faculty Members to Present Seminars at 2018 PCA General Assembly
On June 13, 2018, three Covenant College faculty members will teach seminars at the 46th annual Presbyterian Church in America General Assembly in Atlanta, GA.
Dr. Bill Davis, professor of philosophy at Covenant College, and Dr. Kevin Eames, professor of psychology at Covenant College, will present a seminar entitled “Suicide: 13 Reasons Why the Church Needs to Talk About It.” Specifically, this seminar will address the trending issue of suicide in Western medical practices (“physician-assisted” suicide) and depression. In line with his work in Departing in Peace: Biblical Decision Making at the End of Life, Dr. Bill Davis with the help of Dr. Kevin Eames will discuss the biblical, ethical, and psychological issues surrounding suicide. Resources to equip pastors and churches will be distributed.
Dr. Ken Stewart, professor of theological studies at Covenant College, will teach a seminar entitled “Why Do Thoughtful Younger Protestants Turn Roman Catholic or Eastern Orthodox?” In this seminar, Dr. Stewart will speak out of his recent book, In Search of Ancient Roots: The Christian Past and the Evangelical Identity Crisis, in which he discusses the trend of younger Protestants re-affiliating with Roman Catholicism or Eastern Orthodoxy. In particular, Dr. Stewart asks what we might do differently to prevent the departures.
