The “Kantzer Lectures in Revealed Theology” take an academic approach to contemporary issues in theology. Co-moderated by Thomas McCall, Douglas Sweeney, and Kevin Vanhoozer, and patterned after Scotland’s Gifford Lectures in Natural Theology, the Kantzer Lectures bring leading theologians to Trinity’s campus for learned presentations that will be published in book form by William B. Eerdmans. The Kantzer Lectures provide a platform for the kind of Christian thinking that demonstrates the pastoral function of Christian doctrine by featuring prominent theologians committed to the project of faith seeking understanding, and to making this understanding practical.
