Alumnus Grudem Receiving Doctorate
President Lillback is pleased to announce that Alumnus, Wayne Grudem (MDiv '73), is receiving an honorary doctorate at Westminster's 82nd commencement.
Professor Grudem received a Harvard BA in Economics in 1970 (cum laude), a Westminster MDiv in 1973 and a Cambridge PhD in 1979 (New Testament). Presently he is Research Professor of Theology and Biblical Studies, Phoenix Seminary.
Alumnus Geoff Thomas Receiving Doctorate
Rev. Thomas (MDiv '64), who will be speaking at the 82nd commencement and will receive an Honorary Doctorate, recently answered a few questions about his time at Westminster, and about his faith in Christ.
"I had taken Biblical Studies at University taught by a wholly liberal faculty. I knew that there were answers to the perplexities they spelled out, and that Dr. Stonehouse and Dr. E.J. Young would be able to help: I had read their books. The scholarly, academic, as well as the exegetical foundations laid down for me at Westminster were enormously reassuring, stabilizing and motivating."

New Book by Dr. Poythress!
Redeeming Sociology: A God-centered approach
Redeeming Sociology advocates a biblically informed model for human relationships—relationships rooted in the Trinitarian character of God, his governance of the world, and his redemption accomplished in Christ. Rev. Dr. Vern Poythress, professor of New Testament interpretation, shows how broken relationships are restored through the outworking of redemption in Christ.

This book is now on Sale until June 1 for only $5
Publisher's Description: Hoping "to get us to open our Bibles again when we think about apologetics," K. Scott Oliphint probes six Scripture texts on the subject. He summarizes their message as follows:
"Since Christ is Lord, and the battle is his, we are always ready to contend for the faith once for all delivered to the saints. We are to use the weapons, not of this world, but of the Lord. We are to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ as we demolish the arguments, with gentleness and reverence, of those who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, exchanging the truth of God for a lie, worshipping created things, rather than the Creator…"
"Most of us who want to be faithful witnesses know we need—but often lack—three things: a clear understanding of the truth, the ability to express our message persuasively, and confidence that the gospel has nothing to fear in the intellectual market place. As a skilled seminary professor who has also served in the trenches of pastoral and evangelistic ministry, Dr. Oliphint is well qualified to give us just the help we need."- Sinclair B. Ferguson, Distinguished Visiting Professor of Systematic Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary
