“I am delighted to welcome Dr. Goligher to Beeson Divinity School to present our annual Biblical Studies Lectures,” said Timothy George, founding dean. “He is an outstanding expositional preacher of God’s Word and the pastor of one of the great historic churches in North America.”
“The Lilly Endowment’s Initiative to Strengthen the Quality of Preaching fits perfectly with the mission of Beeson to train ‘pastors who can preach,’” said Grant D. Taylor, associate dean. “Already, the grant has made a significant impact on students, alumni and friends of Beeson Divinity School. We are grateful for Lilly’s help in bringing Dr. Goligher to Beeson and look forward to other exciting educational opportunities made possible by Lilly’s generosity.”
