Tchividjian will put spotlight on Luther’s legacy in American Christianity

Tullian TchividjianAcclaimed author, pastor, and lecturer Tullian Tchividjian will be the featured speaker at Concordia Seminary’s fourth annual Reformation500 speaker series. The event will be held at 7 p.m. CST, March 19, in Werner Auditorium on the Seminary campus.

Serving at present as senior pastor at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Tchividjian (pronounced cha-vi-jin) will offer his perspective on the significance of the Reformation for the current religious landscape of Christianity in the United States.

As Tchividjian examines the legacy of the theology of the Reformation, he brings his own legacy of American Christianity and ministry. He is the grandson of famed evangelist Billy Graham, a contributing editor to Leadership Journal, and founder of LIBERATE, a resource ministry that seeks to “connect God’s inexhaustible grace to an exhausted world.”

Tchividjian is the author of several books and his accolades include Christianity Today’s book of the year in 2011 for Jesus + Nothing = Everything. That book and Glorious Ruin: How Suffering Sets You Free, were finalists for the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA) Books of the Year.

This lecture is free and open to the public. Those who can’t attend may participate via live stream at www.csl.edu/live. For more information, please contact continuing education at 314-505-7286 or ce@csl.edu.

    Huh?!? A legacy of a PCA minister with degree from the Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando?

    You do know that anecdote of Billy Graham calling the Missouri Synod (or the Lutheran Church or Lutherans) a “sleeping giant” is an old wives’ tale, don’t you?!?
