The General Conference Archives is proud to co-sponsor this year’s annual Keough Lectureship at Washington Adventist University (WAU). The lectureship was endowed nearly forty years ago in memory of G. Arthur Keough, distinguished Adventist missionary, theologian, educator, and long-term chair of the WAU Religion Department.
Dr. Alec Ryrie will present the 37th Keough Lectures at Washington on February 19 and 20, 2016. Dr. Ryrie holds a Chair in the History of Christianity at the University of Durham, and is a prize-winning author of histories of the Reformation and its consequences. His books include Being Protestant in Reformation Britain (2013), The Sorcerer's Tale: Faith and Fraud in Tudor England (2008), The Origins of the Scottish Reformation (2006), and The Gospel and Henry VIII: Evangelicals in the Early English Reformation (2003).
Dr. Ryrie will present two lectures:
Friday Feb. 19, 7.00 pm: “How Protestants Use the Bible – and How They Think They Use It”
Saturday Feb. 20, 3.30 pm: "Why the Failure of the Religious Left Matters for Modern Christianity.”
