In early August Samford University hosted an International Colloquium on the Baptist Heritage and Higher Education. The event is part of the ongoing Samford-in-Mission program which, supported by a $2 million grant from the Lilly Endowment, explores connections between faith, vocation and learning. Baptist scholars representing varied theological positions participated in the weeklong colloquium at Samford’s Daniel House in London, England.
According to Randy Todd, chair of Samford’s Classics Department and coordinator of the colloquium, each participant received a stipend for conducting original research, presenting a paper at the colloquium, serving as a critical respondent to others and revising the work for later publication. He said the resulting research is impressive. “These essays promise to provide a valuable resource for Samford, for Baptists, and for a much wider public."
The colloquium, which concluded August 6, included the following scholars
David Bebbington, University of Stirling
John Briggs, Regents Park, Oxford
Wayne Flynt, Auburn University
Erich Geldbach, Professor Emeritus, Ruhr University,
Timothy George, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University
