    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP) -- On the occasion of his 25th anniversary as Southern Baptist Theological Seminary's president, R. Albert Mohler Jr. sat down for a wide-ranging conversation about cultural challenges, theological education, the Southern Baptist Convention and his tenure as the ninth president of the SBC's oldest seminary.

    "When I came here as a student, I definitely came wanting to do a Ph.D. I wanted to be, and felt called to be, a theologian and a preacher of the Word," Mohler said. "I wanted to be deeply involved in apologetics. And I assumed that would be in the pastorate. But I knew that it ... Read More

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP) -- When the apostles preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ, they used Old Testament texts. Preachers in the New Testament era possess the completed canon of Scripture, but that shouldn't mean they rely exclusively on the New Testament when preaching Christ, Philip Ryken stated during the 2018 E.Y. Mullins Lectures on Christian Preaching at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Sept. 26-27.

    Ryken, president of Wheaton College in Illinois, presented four lectures covering the foundations for and applications of preaching Jesus Christ from the Old Testament. The Mullins Lectures, named in honor of Southern Seminary's fourth president, represent one of the oldest endowed preaching lectureships in the United States, second only to Yale university's Lyman Beecher Lectureship on Preaching.

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP) -- Jonathan Coaty has put out a lot of dough for his wife's master's degree in Christian education.

    Pizza dough, that is.

    Coaty took a second job delivering pizzas to cover the cost of tuition for his appreciative wife Jesica, a first-grade teacher at Beth Haven Christian School in Louisville. She is seeking her degree from nearby Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

    "My husband is more passionate about Christian education than most Christian educators," Jesica said, fighting back tears as she talked about his sacrifice. "He has invested long hours in my degree. By the time I finish in December, he will have delivered nearly 7,000 pizzas." Read More

The conference is being hosted by St. Louis's Memorial Presbyterian Church, which is affiliated with the theologically conservative Presbyterian Church in America. Read More

  • SBC seminaries: #MeToo is 'wakeup call for the church'

    by David Roach, posted Wednesday, July 18, 2018 (4 months ago)

    NASHVILLE (BP) -- Southern Baptist Convention seminaries long have sought to train ministers in personal integrity, but amid the #MeToo movement, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary President Daniel Akin said, they have "heightened the alert."

    From Southeastern in North Carolina to Gateway Seminary in Southern California, SBC seminaries are training students and faculty to recognize and deal with abuse, reemphasizing personal sexual morality and offering resources to those struggling with sexual sin.

    Southeastern has "raised the flag and heightened the alert," Akin told Baptist Press, "given the cultural trends that we're now encountering, given the technological world in which we live" where moral failings often are widely publicized. Read More
