Washington Adventist University to Present 39th G. Arthur Keough Lectureship on September 22-23

Takoma Park, MD (September 6, 2017) Washington Adventist University’s 39th G. Arthur Keough Lectureship will be presented on September 22-23 in Richards Hall Chapel on campus. This year’s Lectureship commemorates the fifth centennial of the Reformation (1517 – 2017). The featured speaker will be Aleksandar S. Santrac, D.Phil. and Ph.D., Professor of Religion and Chair of the Washington Adventist University Department of Religion. The lectures are free and open to the public.

The first lecture will be presented on September 22 at 7:00 p.m. “The Legacy of Martin Luther’s Sola Scriptura” will re-examine the ecumenical and postmodern dimensions of the legacy of Luther’s Sola Scriptura principle, the reformer’s revolutionary teaching that the Scriptures are the sole infallible rule of faith and practice.


The second lecture will be presented on September 23 at 3:30 p.m. on “The Legacy of Martin Luther’s Sola Fide,” which examines the Christian struggle for liberation, goodness, justice, beauty and truth through the lens of Luther’s concept of justification by faith alone.
