by Public Relations Office

Cedarville, Ohio—Dr. Bruce Ware, professor of Christian theology and senior associate dean at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, will be the guest speaker for the Staley Distinguished Christian Scholar Lecture Program at Cedarville University Feb. 12-14. Ware will speak at 10 a.m. each morning in the Jeremiah Chapel of the Dixon Ministry Center. His series is titled “The God of Open Theism vs. The God of the Bible.” Ware is well-known for his work on the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, of which he has been president since 1999. His articles on human personhood, submission within the Trinity, and open theism have helped shed light on controversial issues facing the church. His books—God’s Lesser Glory: The Diminished God of Open Theism, Still Sovereign: Contemporary Perspectives on Election, Foreknowledge, and Grace, and The Grace of God, The Bondage of the Will—have also assisted many in their personal theological pursuit. Ware received his B.A. from Whitworth College, the M.Div. and Th.M. from Western Conservative Baptist Seminary, an M.A. from the University of Washington, and his Ph.D. from Fuller Theological Seminary. The lecture series is free and open to the public. For more information, call 937-766-7808. The Staley Distinguished Christian Scholar Lecture Program is funded by the Thomas F. Staley Foundation of Larchmont, N.Y. This private, nonprofit organization seeks to support men and women who truly believe, cordially love, and actively propagate the Gospel of Jesus Christ in its historical and scriptural fullness. Cedarville University publicly thanks the Thomas F. Staley Foundation for making this annual lectureship program possible.
