What I’ll Be Up to at the TGC National Conference

Next week, Sept 25-27 th , I’ll be headed to Indianapolis to participate in The Gospel Coalition National  Conference entitled, “Hope in the Wilderness.”

The conference this year is unique because TGC is partnering with other organizations to offer “micro events.” These are sort of like smaller conferences within the larger conference. So, while TGC has invited plenary speakers, and even sponsored some of their own breakout sessions, each of these organizations have invited their own speakers.

On that note, Reformed Theological Seminary has a micro event with a number of speakers including myself, James Anderson, Greg Beale, Scott Swain, Leigh Swanson, Nancy Guthrie, Melissa Kruger, and Ligon Duncan.

How Can Seminary Students Keep Their Devotional Life Strong?

RTS has started a new video series called Wisdom Wednesday where our faculty share their advice on a number of important practical and theological issues. Keep an eye out for it on Twitter in weeks to come (@ReformTheoSem #WisdomWednesday).

Below is my video from yesterday’s installment on how seminary students can keep their devotional life strong in the midst of their studies.  Although it is directed to a seminary context, I hope it would be helpful for any Christian who wants to go deeper in their devotional life.  Enjoy!

TGC Panel Discussion on the Authority of Scripture

Back in April, I participated in a panel discussion at The Gospel Coalition national conference, moderated by Justin Taylor. The topic was the authority and reliability of Scripture, and included a number of RTS professors such as John Currid, Chuck Hill, and Bruce Baugus.

Below I have included the video of this discussion. I think it is a stimulating and wide-ranging discussion covering a variety of issues such as archaeology, manuscripts, and textual criticism. Enjoy!

Humbled to Serve as the President of RTS-Charlotte

As of January 1st, I began my new role as President of Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, NC (originally announced here).  It is a humbling experience to be asked to lead a seminary of this caliber, but I am excited about what the Lord is doing, and what he will do, through this institution.

For the last eleven years I have served as a professor of New Testament here at RTS, and seven of those years I was also Academic Dean.  When I was first approached with the opportunity to be the new president, I was admittedly hesitant.  But, what persuaded me in the end was my …
