We wanted to alert you to an upcoming conference hosted by our friends at the Ryan Center for Biblical Studies at Union University. The conference, which will be held on April 12-13, is on the topic Read, Pray, Sing: The Psalms as an Entryway to the Scriptures. Several faculty members from Union will be speaking at the event, including Ryan Center director Ray Van Neste. We like Dr. Van Neste around here, so we asked him to serve on the editorial board of our scholarly journal, Southeastern Theological Review.
The plenary speakers for the conference are two of Southeastern’s own. Heath Thomas serves as Associate Professor of Old Testament and Hebrew and Director of our Ph.D. program. Andy Davis serves as the Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church of Durham and is an Adjunct Professor of Historical Theology at SEBTS. Both of these brothers have a passion for the Word of God and a desire to see Baptist and other evangelical churches saturated with the Scriptures through preaching, prayer, and worship. The Psalms ought to play a crucial role in this needed scriptural saturation.
We would urge you to attend Read, Pray, Sing: The Psalms as an Entryway to the Scriptures. It promises to be an edifying meeting that will encourage and perhaps challenge students, pastors, and worship leaders.
