Yarbrough to speak in Cedarville University Staley Lecture Series

Every year, 3students and community members gather in Cedarville University’s Jeremiah Chapel to take part in the Staley Lecture Series. Since 1977, the series has brought renowned speakers from around the world to present biblically-based lectures with the goal of reaching the hearts and minds of Christian college students.

This year’s lecture series features Robert Yarbrough, Ph.D, as keynote speaker. The series runs Tuesday and Wednesday, October 18 and 19. Yarbrough’s theme is “A Kingdom that Cannot be Shaken.”

Yarbrough is a professor of New Testament at Covenant Theological Seminary. He is involved in theological education in Africa and Eastern Europe. He is also the author of several books.

Gregory Couser, Ph.D, explains how Yarbrough meets the goals of the Staley Foundation. “Besides his ability as a communicator and scholar, the topic he is addressing is a timely one for both college-age believers and the church at large.

In this time of increased Christian activism, what theological resources need to inform that action? How do we stay on track with God’s kingdom purposes? What should we be doing and what should we expect to accomplish? What are the pitfalls we are trying to avoid on the way? These are questions that any Christian will be interested in. Moreover, that fact that he will talk about these vital issues against the backdrop of his ministry in Sudan over the years ensures that it will not be a discussion of these issues that just hovers over and around the edges of life.”
