These lectures are free and open to public. Please join us in the Calvin Theological Seminary Auditorium.

Cornelius Plantinga, Jr., Senior Research Fellow, Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, and President Emeritus, Calvin Theological Seminary

Neal Plantinga teaches a course annually at Calvin College (he was Dean of the Chapel from 1996 to 2001) and at Calvin Theological Seminary (he was a professor there from 1979 to 1996 and President from 2001 to 2011). He writes for the Worship Institute and cohosts seminars for preachers on reading for preaching—i.e., on how a program of general reading (stories, biographies, print journalism) can help the preacher become a better one.

Dr. Plantinga's lectures will be based on his brand-new book Reading for Preaching: The Preacher in Conversation with Storytellers, Biographers, Poets, and Journalists (Eerdmans, 2013).
