Announcement from the Theological Fellowship @ Covenant Seminary

The Theological Fellowship @ Covenant Seminary has just announced its next two speakers in its bi-annual Bantam Lecture Series (BLS).  Since 2011, such speakers as C. John Collins, Nicholas Perrin, Esther Meek, Michael McClymond, and Karen Jobes (just to name a few) have given lectures in this series.  This year's lecturers will continue to raise the bar in this series in its pursuit of devoted and relevant theological inquiry.  

Peter Leithart
The first lecture is on March 6th and will be given by Peter Leithart.  Leithart is president of Trinity House Institute for Biblical, Liturgical, & Cultural Studies in Birmingham, Alabama and is a noted blogger.  He widely published, but is most known for his stances on federal vision.  His lecture for the BLS is still TBD, but stay tuned and I will update you as soon as I hear.  It should be a good one!  

The second lecture is on April 17th and will be given by the well-known NT theologian, D.A. Carson.  Carson is research NT professor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Chicago.  Carson has published many books and is known for his instrumental work in getting the Gospel Coalition up and running.  Carson will lecture on theodicy (I do not have the specific title as of yet).

D.A. Carson
With these two lectures, the BLS will continue to be the best series of lectures currently offered by any theological graduate school, let alone a series put on by the students.   The TF@CS should be commended for their continued industry and endeavor to provide a forum that seeks thorough, rigorous, and Christ-centered inquiry!

Both lectures will be held on Covenant's campus in St. Louis and are free of charge.
