AMCL 2015 - Mere Protestant Christianity: How Singing sola Renews Biblical Interpretation (and Theology)
Professor Kevin J. Vanhoozer Research Professor of Systematic Theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, will deliver the Annual Moore College Lectures 2015 on the five solas of the Reformation. He will address our topic over one night and five mornings.
The five solas (or five "alones") are five phrases that emerged in the Protestant Reformation to summarise the Reformers' understanding of the essentials of Biblical Christianity. This series will examine the meaning of these phrases and show how they remain vital for Christian life and witness in today's world.
