Transformationalism and Christian Higher Education

Dr. William Dennison discusses transformational eschatology and Christian higher education. Dr. Dennison’s has written two articles that become the subject of discussion. In The Christian Academy: Antithesis, Common Grace, and Plato’s View of the Soul, Dennison uses Plato’s view of the soul as a test case in the need for a fully biblical approach to higher education, and in Dutch Neo-Calvinism and the Roots for Transformation: An Introductory Essay Dennison provides a helpful introduction into the roots and early history of Dutch neo-Calvinism.

Dr. Dennison is Professor of Interdisciplinary Studies at Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, GA and Professor of Apologetics and Systematic Theology at Northwest Theological Seminary in Lynnwood, WA. Dennison is the author of The Young Bultmann: Context for His Understanding of God, 1884–1925.

    I found this one hard going. Dr. Dennison, I am sure has many gifts, but I have my doubts that succinctness of expression is one of them. Incidentally did I hear some snoring during one the esteemed Doctor’s lengthier monologues?

    I find much of Bill’s presentations very helpful, but agree that sometimes when he get’s rolling he may need to take a few more breaks and pauses. I found his comments on Common Grace following the biblical anthesis to be very helpful and worth reflection.

    Hey Camden, Greetings from Mount Morris. Reformed Forum is a voice crying in the wilderness out here. Thank you for your efforts.

  3. Thanks Bob. I played a lot of baseball in Mt. Morris as a visiting Stillman Valley player. I remember an old cinder track near the field where I played. I also remember taking a ball off my collar bone while catching.

    I’m glad to hear Reformed Forum has made its way to your area. We started this up for the very reason that there are many people who don’t live near Reformed churches or Reformed Christians. Let’s pray the Lord brings many more church plants to life in Northern Illinois.
