Dr. Gregory Thornbury announced as keynote for CSU's Staley Lecture Series
Dr. Gregory Thornbury, President of The King’s College, New York City will be the keynote speaker at Charleston Southern University's the 2014 Staley Distinguished Christian Scholar Lecture Series on Tuesday, March 4. Thornbury will present three lectures in which he explores past eclipses of the faith, the recent eclipse of Christianity in the United States and the appropriate response to the current situation from believers in both the church and academy.
Throughout history the Christian faith has experienced seasons of eclipse, times when its influence and practice have decreased where it once flourished (e.g., North Africa, Middle East, Europe). With the dawn of the 21st century, Christianity in the United States has experienced a similar reduction in influence. This present reality has left believers perplexed as to how the current situation came about and how to respond.
The lectures are free and open to all.
Eclipses of Christianity in the Past (9:30 a.m. – 10:45 a.m.)
The Recent Eclipse of Christianity in the United States (11:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.)
Response of the Church and Christians in the Academy (2:00 p.m. – 3:15 p.m.)
The lectures are hosted by the Worldview Institute of the Whitfield Center for Christian Leadership. For more information contact Dr. Michael L. Bryant in the School of Christian Studies at firstname.lastname@example.org or (843) 863-7973.
