Tullian Tchividjian to speak at Concordia Seminary

YTpWfjhrThe fourth Reformation500 annual speaker series at Concordia Seminary will feature well-known author, Tullian Tchividjian, senior pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. The event will be held in Werner Auditorium on Thursday evening, March 19, 2015 at 7:00 pm.

A Lecturer of Pastoral Theology at Knox Theological Seminary, William Graham Tullian Tchividjian (pronounced cha-vi-jin) is also a contributing editor to Leadership Journal, and the grandson of Evangelist Billy Graham. Tullian is the author of a number of books, including the most recent, It Is Finished: 365 Days of Good News, and One Way Love (sold over 125,000 copies) as well as the best seller, Jesus + Nothing = Everything which won Christianity Today’s book of the year in 2011. Both Jesus + Nothing = Everything and his recent book Glorious Ruin: How Suffering Sets You Free were an ECPA finalist for Book of the Year. Tullian is also the founder of LIBERATE—a resource ministry that seeks to “connect God’s inexhaustible grace to an exhausted world” through an annual conference, a website, and a wide range of other media outlets including a daily radio program on Moody Radio called LIBERATE.

As an important voice within American evangelicalism, we look forward to hearing his perspective on the challenges and opportunities that the theology of the Reformation brings to the contemporary American religious landscape.

verticalreformation500The Center for Reformation Research and Concordia Seminary began commemorations for the Reformation Quincentenary by sponsoring an annual speaker series aimed at the St. Louis community to offer varying perspectives on the significance of the Reformation.  Oswald Bayer began the series in 2012 with “A Public Mystery.”  In 2013, the Office of Ecumenical and Inter-religious Affairs of the Archdiocese of St. Louis co-sponsored the event, featuring Fr. Jared Wicks, S.J. and his engaging lecture, “A Catholic Appreciation of Martin Luther for Theology and Life.” In addition, Fr. Wicks contributed to the Concordia Journal with some new research on Vatican II and its implications for Lutheran-Catholic Dialogue (“Lutheran-Catholic Dialogue: On Foundations Laid in 1962-1964” CJ 39 (Fall 2013), 296-309.) Last year, renowned Reformation historian Steven Ozment gave a lecture on the contribution of the artist Lucas Cranach to Luther and the Reformation.

This lecture is free of charge and open to the public. For more information, please contact continuing education at 314-505-7486 or email ce@csl.edu.
