Kennard in the News!

Douglas Kennard’s article: “Petrine Redemption: Its meaning and Extent,” Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society 30(1987): 399–405 has been hosted on rival web sites showing the balance and historical engagement of views at Houston Graduate School of Theology.

Apart from the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society listings, the article can also be found on http://calvinandcalvinism.com/?p=3668 and http://evangelicalarminians.org/douglas-w-kennard-petrine-redemption-its-meaning-and-extent/ . Here at Houston Graduate School of Theology we strive to provide nuanced Biblical discussion in such a manner as to do justice to the variety of options available and then to provide clear positions in the midst of this spectrum that can be understood and appreciated by rivals.

This meeting will be led by Dr. David Capes, Thomas Nelson Professor at Houston Baptist University, and Frank Couch, editor from Thomas Nelson.
