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. You can also find Eboo Patel’s lecture on “Religious Freedom and a Theology of Interfaith Cooperation” here, and his lecture on “Religious Freedom and Interfaith Leadership” here.


The Shurden Lectures in Retrospect

Check out this write-up of the recent 2020 Shurden Lectures in Perspective Online, a publication of Perkins School of Theology. It was an honor for the the Baptist House of Studies–Perkins School of Theology at SMU to participate in hosting these annual lectures with the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty (the event was also in cooperation with Faith Commons). It was a wonderful experience!

A nice write-up on the Shurden Lectures. Wonderful experience and great to see so many of you there!
