Mark Gignilliat, associate professor in Samford University's Beeson Divinity School, presented at the University of St. Andrews Institute for Bible, Theology and Hermeneutics on April 13 in St. Andrews, Fife, Scotland.

Gignilliat presented "On the 'Theological' in Theological Commentary." His talk is part of a commentary on the Book of Micah he is currently writing for the International Theological Commentary.

"Many seeds were planted in my own mind during my attendance and participation in this seminar while a post-graduate at St. Andrews," Gignilliat said.
