Excellent news from SBTS: Carl Trueman of Westminster Theological Seminary will deliver the prestigious Gheens Lectures at Southern Seminary next week. To say I am excited to hear Trueman speak on Luther would be an exercise in understatement. It gets better, though–Trueman is speaking on Luther as “theological pastor.” Sounds like some pastor-theologian material to me…
Here’s the official announcement:
Next Tuesday and Wednesday, September 11-12, Dr. Carl Trueman will deliver the Fall 2012 Gheens Lectures in Heritage Hall entitled “We are Beggars: Martin Luther as Theological Pastor.” Dr. Trueman is the Paul Woolley Professor of Church History at Westminster Theological Seminary.

In addition, the first 100 students to arrive at the 1:00 p.m. lecture on Tuesday (Sep 11) will receive a free copy of Dr. Trueman’s book Historical Fallacies: Problems Faced in the Writing of History.Refreshments from Great Harvest Bread Company will also be served.
