With the upcoming installation of our new president Dr. Gary Nelson here at Tyndale University College and Seminary (September 30), there are a number of activities that will be taking place.
Thursday, September 30th from 12pm-1pm, Dr. Jennifer Powell McNutt, Assistant Professor of Theology and Church History at Wheaton College, will be giving a presentation on her research on John Calvin and his successors in 18th century Geneva. Considering her work in some of the archives in Geneva, this presentation should be of interest to faculty, staff, students, and visitors.
Thursday evening at 7:30pm will be the installation of Dr. Gary Nelson. This will be held at the Bayview Campus Chapel.
Friday, October 1st, Tyndale is hosting a day long conference entitled "Tyndale Thinks & Writes" (Find details here). There are two morning addresses. The first entitled "The Role of the University in the 21st Century" will be given by Dr. David Barnard, President of the University of Manitoba. The second given by Dr. Anna Robbins, Senior Lecturer at the London School of Theology is "Can Societies Repent? Reflections on Ethics as Apologetics and the Moral Development of Society". The afternoon is scheduled with concurrent sessions where Tyndale faculty will be presenting their most recent research and publications. I will be chairing the session where my colleague Dr. Daniel Driver will be presenting on his book: Brevard Childs, Biblical Theologian: For the Church's One Bible (FAT II/46; Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck, 2010).
It should be a good weekend of festivities.
