Last week, I was honored to present the Day-Higginbotham Lectures at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and to present plenary addresses to the Evangelical Theological Society/Southwest Region on the sufficiency of Scripture. I will be posting thoughts about these issues in coming weeks. The sufficiency of Scripture and the Reformation principle of sola Scriptura must remain central to any authentically evangelical theological method.

I was really encouraged to be on the Southwestern campus, and I must express particular appreciation to President Paige Patterson and his wife, Dorothy, as well as my lectureship host, Professor Malcolm Yarnell. I was also glad to be with Professor Kevin Kennedy, program chair for the ETS meeting. I had a great time meeting with SWBTS faculty and graduate students during my time on the campus, and I was very encouraged by the conviction and vision I found on the campus of that great and historic school.
