Carl Trueman: The Inaugural Lecture for the Center for Classical Theology
The Center for Classical Theology exists to contemplate God and all things in relation to God by listening with humility to his word with the wisdom of the Great Tradition. The purpose of CCT is to create a renewed vision for systematic theology today in the spirit of faith seeking understanding.
CCT is pleased to announce its inaugural lecture. Carl R. Trueman will deliver this inaugural lecture and his address is titled, “Why we need classical theology now more than ever.” The lecture will take place at 6:30pm on November 13th (the evening before the meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society) in San Antonio, TX at the Henry Gonzalez Convention Center (Room 225CD). The lecture will be followed by a dialogue between Carl Trueman, Matthew Barrett, and other theologians. Seating is limited and you can register here.
The CCT annual lecture is sponsored by Crossway publishing. In the aftermath of modernism’s deconstruction of dogmatics, each lectureship is committed to the reconstruction of dogmatics with the church catholic (universal)—from the church fathers to the medieval and Protestant scholastics. CCT summons the next generation of theologians to exemplify a biblical reasoning, rational contemplation, and reformed catholicity that directs systematic theology to its spiritual end and most blessed hope: beholding the beauty of the Lord.
In that spirit, CCT will also announce the winner of the Scholastic Award at the inaugural lecture. The winner will be published in The Journal of Classical Theology and he or she will be rewarded with the new edition of the works of both John Owen and Stephen Charnock (Crossway).
