The Center is anticipating a lecture by Dr. Richard Mouw, President of Fuller Theological Seminary, on January 20, 2010. The lecture falls within the Center’s Scripture and Ministry program. See info about the talk below (and note that it is free and open to all).
- The Christian community needs to work at integrating our doctrine, action and piety (”head, hands and heart”). But which takes priority? And a closely related issue: what, in the most basic sense, is the Bible trying to “do” to us? Shape the way we think? Guide us in the activist programs we align ourselves with in the word? Transform our inner life? Obviously, all three are crucial. But Richard Mouw will explain why he keeps coming back to the fundamental need to be guided in everything else by the kind of piety that characterized the “sawdust trail” of our revivalist past.
