First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley and New College Berkeley are launching a new annual lectureship in honor of the Reverend Earl F. Palmer, pastor of First Presbyterian Church Berkeley from 1970 to 1991, and founding trustee of New College Berkeley. The Berkeley Palmer Lectureship will examine current biblical scholarship at the intersection of the Church and the Academy. This lectureship, beginning with the inaugural lecture by Dr. Craig Barnes on May 5, 2018, will bring the lens of biblical scholarship to issues of concern to the university, the seminary, and the church.
Student Seminar | 2pm | GTU Library | 2400 Ridge Rd | Dinner Board Room
Students are invited to an informal conversation with Dr. Barnes about what’s happening with the Christian church in the US, and how theological schools are responding to the challenges of our time.
