Learn about the Baptist House of Studies: Shurden Lectures

This March the Baptist House of Studies (BHS) at Perkins, of which I am director, co-sponsored the 2020 Walter B. and Kay W. Shurden Lectures on Religious Liberty and Separation of Church and State along with the Baptist Joint Committee. I’m delighted the BHS could be part of this event dedicated to promoting religious liberty. If you’re interested in learning more about the BHS at Perkins, this video from the Shurden Lectures exemplifies some of what we do and the values we promote.
