Houston Baptist University and Seminary is an up and coming school, and I was honored to be asked to come and give a plenary lecture there on ‘The Social Identity of the Earliest Christians’. The plenary lectures were held in the beautiful new chapel at the Seminary which has a huge organ and colorful stained glass window….
The chapel has rounded sides with huge clear glass windows to let the light in. On the night I was giving my lecture there was an enormous thunder and lightning storm going on outside, and so there were cosmic and divine affirmations of my major points 🙂
Here are the three plenary lectures, John Barclay my friend from Durham and Everett Ferguson from Abilene Christian.—
