Gordon Fee, Keynote Speaker at Student Theology Conference

We, the members of The Biblical & Theological Studies Department at Northwestern College, were pleased to host this year's Undergraduate Theology Conference (UTC) on our campus. Students who are majoring in biblical and theological studies at Bethel University, Crown College, North Central University, and Northwestern College presented juried papers throughout the afternoon and early evening at the UTC on Thursday, April 20. The evening was fittingly capped off with a banquet in the NWC Blue Room with Dr. Gordon Fee, Professor Emeritus of New Testament Studies at Regent College (Vancouver, B.C.), presenting a wonderful after dinner lecture titled "Why Christians Read the Bible Badly." He passionately delivered his lecture and graciously fielded several questions afterward.

On Friday, April 21, Dr. Fee preached in our chapel at NWC on the passage commonly referred to as the Parable of the Prodigal Son, Luke 15:11-31. His message was powerful in content and in delivery.

Thanks to God for his gift to the church in the man, Dr. Gordon Fee.

Here are two books that seek to correct many of the problems that Dr. Fee addressed in his lecture.
