The Sixth Annual David C. Jones Theology Lectures
Covenant Theological Seminary
February 12-13, 2013

Covenant Seminary invites you to join us for the Sixth Annual David C. Jones Theology Lectures on Tuesday, February 12, and Wednesday, February 13. This year’s speaker is Dr. Michael Bird, lecturer in systematic theology and New Testament at Ridley Melbourne Mission and Ministry College in Melbourne, Australia. Dr. Bird has recently completed a major work on systematic theology entitled Evangelical Theology: A Gospel Theology for Gospel People, which will be published by Zondervan late in 2013. The book attempts to be genuinely evangelical by letting “its content, structure, and substance be singularly determined by the gospel.”

Named in honor of Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology and Ethics Dr. David C. Jones, the Jones Theology Lectures highlight the Seminary’s strong commitment to a warm and winsome understanding of the Reformed faith as each year we invite a leading Christian theologian to preach in chapel, dialogue with faculty and students, and present lectures that encourage our community in the truth of the gospel.

The Jones Lectures are free and open to the public. (Students wishing to take the lectures as an independent study should contact the Registrar.)
