Hospitality for Christ
Jason Pickard (MDiv '10), campus minister for RUF-International at Texas A&M University
"On campus I am basically like a chaplain for international students. I seek serve internationals in any way that I can. Sometimes this means simply welcoming students and helping them to understand how things work in Aggieland (what we call College Station).
"A large part of what we do, and one of RUF-International’s core values, is hospitality."
Congratulations Dr. Trueman!
The Paul Woolley Chair of Church History
Congratulations to Rev. Dr. Carl Trueman, who will be the first occupant of the Paul Woolley Chair of Church History! Concurrent with receiving this honor, Dr. Trueman will be retiring from his role as academic dean at the end of June 2012, to focus his attention on writing and teaching.
"I am greatly honoured by this distinction and believe that it provides the perfect occasion for me once again to make my teaching and my writing a priority."

Rev. Dr. Greg Beale
, professor of New Testament and biblical theology has published a new work in biblical studies, A New Testament Biblical Theology
In this comprehensive exposition, a leading New Testament scholar explores the unfolding theological unity of the entire Bible from the vantage point of the New Testament. G. K. Beale, co-editor of the award-winning Commentary on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament
, examines how the New Testament storyline relates to and develops the Old Testament storyline. Beale argues that every major concept of the New Testament is a development of a concept from the Old and is to be understood as a facet of the inauguration of the latter-day new creation and kingdom. Offering extensive interaction between the two testaments, this volume helps readers see the unifying conceptual threads of the Old Testament and how those threads are woven together in Christ. This major work will be valued by students of the New Testament and pastors alike.
This offer is exclusively for Westminster alumni, and may be used two times between now and the end of December.
