For those of you who are unable to attend SEBTS’ The Gospel Comes to Life Conference, you may keep up with the conference as Nathan Finn “live blogs” the Mahaney, Driscoll, and Akin sessions on Friday and Saturday. Stay tuned. For those interested in attending, we are at maximum capacity in the chapel. However, we do have overflow seating with live video-feed, on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The Politics of Jesus
On October 9-10 at FBC-Durham (NC), the North Carolina Baptist State Convention will be hosting a conference The Politics of Jesus: Timeless Answers for Today’s Questions. Headlining the conference are SEBTS’ very own David Nelson and Nathan Finn, along with C. Ben Mitchell, Greg Thornbury, Andy Davis, and Ken Fentress.
Nelson, a brilliantly crotchety polymath who has spent time thinking about nearly everything, will be presenting on “Adorning our Savior’s Teaching: How the Gospel Matters for Public Life.” Finn, who has recently committed several acts of literature, including Domestic Slavery Considered as a Scriptural Institution, will be presenting on “The Pulpit and the Public Square: Some Observations from the Ministry of Charles Haddon Spurgeon.”
