Join us on campus in the chapel for a free academic lectureship.  No need to pre-register.  Come for one of all of these lectures sponsored by the Dr. Garry Owen M.D. Memorial.

This year’s lecture features Dr. Duane Garrett, who will bring a series of five lectures based on his recent book, The Problem of the Old Testament: Hermeneutical, Schematic, and Theological Approaches.

With exegetical precision, Duane Garrett analyzes proposed interpretive strategies to link both testaments, highlighting their strengths and weaknesses. Then he courageously proposes a method linking the two testaments on sounder exegetical grounding without resorting to special pleading or interpretive stabs in the dark. Students of both testaments of the Bible will find much to learn from Garrett’s study, honing their interpretive skills, understanding how the biblical writers wrote and how their messages cohere into a unified whole.

-Kevin C. Peacock, professor of Old Testament and Hebrew
