Timothy George on the Five Revolutions

Dr. Timothy George is the Dean of Beeson Divinity School in Birmingham, Alabama. He is delivering the Page Lectures this week at Southeastern Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina. I listened to the first lecture yesterday morning, and it was outstanding. He argues among other things that the Baptist movement stands on the theological shoulders of the mainline Protestant Reformers like Martin Luther. Here are the links to both of his lectures.

“The Five Revolutions of the Reformation Era” – by Timothy George (Page Lectures, Southeastern Seminary)

“Martin Luther’s Discovery of the Gospel” – by Timothy George (Page Lectures, Southeastern Seminary)

    Timothy George is the greatest theologian today.

    Because I’ve studied under people like this:
    http://www.regent-college.edu/about_regent/faculty/focus3.html and
    http://www.langhampartnership.org/john-stott/biography/ and,
    http://divinity.uchicago.edu/faculty/marty.shtml

    Dr. George rises above them in his academic pedigree, brillant publications, evangelical passion and historic permanence. And besides that, it is my opinion! 🙂

    You went to Regent and the University of Chicago as well as studying under Stott?! Wow!

    If timothy is saying what you want to hear it is perfect. But I don’t think it is a good idea to stand on the shoulders of giants.

    oops. Here is the link I meant to leave.
    http://www.scrollpublishing.com/store/more-Reformers-Stepchildren.html
    This is a reprint of a book by Leonard Verduin originally published by Eerdmans

    also, I just read “Mere Discipleship” by Lee Camp, who seems to have similar concerns about what he calls “the constantinian cataract.”
