To mark the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, TEDS hosted a conference Sept. 14–15, “Reformation and the Ministry of the Word,” that will focus on the role of Scripture in the events of 1517.
Outside speakers included Timothy George, Dean of Samford University’s Beeson Divinity School, Michael Haykin of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Ron Rittgers of Valparaiso University, Michael Horton of Westminster Seminary-California, and Kevin De Young of University Reformed Church, East Lansing, Mich. From Trinity, speakers included President David S. Dockery, Assistant Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology David J. Luy, and Professor of Church History Scott M. Manetsch, who is also one of the conference coordinators, and Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology Thomas H. McCall. Professor and Chair of the Church History & History of Christian Thought Department Douglas A. Sweeney served as emcee.
“The Reformation was a dynamic renewal movement unleashed by God’s powerful Word that changed the face of western Christianity,” Manetsch said. “Our conference explored the Bible’s transformative impact on the theology and ministry practice of Protestant churches, both then and now.”
