2011 Rice Lectures


On Wednesday, March 2, Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary will host its annual William R. Rice Lectures. This year we will be privileged to have Dr. Terry Mortenson from Answers in Genesis. His lecture relates to the compromise theologians have used to reinterpret biblical texts to support an old-earth.

Dr. Mortenson has earned an M.Div. from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and a PhD in the history of geology from the University of Coventry in England. He has used his dissertation to write a helpful book entitled The Great Turning Point: The Church’s Catastrophic Mistake on Geology–Before Darwin.

Here is an announcement that Dr. Claude Wiggins sent out to friends of DBTS.

The Seminary is hosting the 2011 William R. Rice Lectures on Wednesday, March 2nd. We would love to have you join us for the morning (8:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m.). Feel free to bring with you staff members, other church leaders, and college students. The lectures will be followed by a luncheon fellowship.

This year???s theme is ???Millions of Years and the Compromise of the Theologians.??? Our speaker will be Dr. Terry Mortenson, a researcher and lecturer with Answers in Genesis.

A special chapel session will be held on Thursday, March 3rd (10:30-11:20 a.m.). At that time, Dr. Mortenson will speak on ???Ape-men and the Compromise of the Theologians.???
