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 and . 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.

The VOICE ~ Dr. David Capes

“Do it again. This time…make it beautiful.” ~Dr. David Capes

I had the privilege recently of sharing about the Voice project at Houston Graduate School of Theology.  This school is doing great things in Houston to prepare men and women for lives of service to the church and the world.  The president, Dr. James Furr, understands the times and is leading HGST to become a key place in America where students can explore significant aspects of the missional movement.

The VOICE Event at HGST

On Monday, April 8, 7:00-8:00 pm, HGST will be hosting a presentation concerning The Voice, a new translation from Thomas Nelson Publishers. Several faculty are currently using The Voice, and many students have found the translation to be helpful. Dr. Chuck Pitts and Dr. Peter Davids, professors at HGST, and Jack Wisdom, chairman of the HGST Board of Trustees, worked on the translation project.

This meeting will be led by Dr. David Capes, Thomas Nelson Professor at Houston Baptist University, and Frank Couch, editor from Thomas Nelson. They will be talking about the project and sharing some insights on the process of Bible translations. Some freebies will be included at the meeting. Hope to see you there.
