Nearly Sold-Out Reformation Conference to Include Leading Theologians Dr. Walter C. Kaiser, Jr., Dr. Gordon Hugenberger and Dr. Dennis P. Hollinger

 

SOUTH HAMILTON, MA (October 24, 2017) – Nearing capacity, Gordon-Conwell will host one of the largest free conferences celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation starting this Thursday, Oct. 26, at the Kaiser Chapel of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, MA.

The three-day conference features 23 speakers from all four of the Gordon-Conwell campuses as they speak on the implications of the Reformation for the modern-day church in their area of expertise.

"Five hundred years ago the Protestant Reformation set in motion changes that affect us today. We hope many will join us to hear the story of those beginnings and the implications for ministry today,” says Dr. Gordon Isaac, a church historian and Director of the Th.M Program in Christian Thought. "The hard-won insight into the nature of the gospel continues to be a beacon of hope in a wind-tossed era. This will be a time to recall the rediscovery of the gospel and to rekindle our own love of that Christ-centered theology."

Full list of speakers and lectures:


Special Opportunity: Thurs. Oct. 26 will feature a special opportunity to view a selection of rare books from the time of the Reformation, including a 1535 Martin Luther Bible on the first day of the conference. Additionally, the conference proceedings will be published by Hendrickson Publishers with more information at www.gordonconwell.edu in the weeks to follow.
