Item Description...
Overview
The prestigious Stob Lectures, presented each October at Calvin College and Calvin Theological Seminary in honor of Henry J. Stob, have drawn some of today's most celebrated Christian thinkers in the fields of ethics, apologetics, and philosophical theology. This volume collects under one cover all of the Stob Lectures from Lewis Smedes's inaugural talks in 1986 to Eleonore Stump's lectures in 1998. (The 1999 presentation by John Hare, titled God's Call, is now available as an independent volume as will be all subsequent Stob Lectures.)

Publishers Description
The Stob Lectures, sponsored annually by Calvin College and Calvin Theological Seminary, have drawn some of today's most celebrated Christian thinkers in the fields of ethics, apologetics, and philosophical theology. This volume collects under one cover each of the Stob Lectures delivered from 1986 to 1998. Comprised of thirteen learned, relevant, and well-crafted addresses, Seeking Understanding presents a diverse range of significant topics, illumined in engaging ways by the scholars who know them best. Lewis B. Smedes's inaugural lecture examines the subject of commitment. James M. Gustafson follows with a look at moral discourse, while Peter Kreeft speaks on immortality. Alvin Plantinga explores the nature of Christian scholarship, and Marty E. Marty surveys the denominational landscape. Allen D. Verhey probes key issues in medical ethics, while Nicholas P. Wolterstorff compares neo-Calvinism and "Yale theology." Other lectures feature Dewey J. Hoitenga Jr. on happiness, John Feikens on conflict, George I. Mavrodes on philosophy, Arthur F. Holmes on Christian education, and J. Harold Ellens on dysfunction. Eleanore Stump rounds out the volume with an insightful discussion of the problem of evil. Illustrative of the same depth of thinking, scholarly passion, and clarity of expression that characterized the work of the man whom these lectures honor, Henry J. Stob, Seeking Understanding is both a valuable omnibus and a superb introduction to a rich and influential tradition of Christian scholarship.

Thirteen Well Written Addresses of Keen Interest  Feb 14, 2002
Calvin College and Calvin Theological Seminary sponsor the Stob Lectures annually. Topics for the lectures are chosen from the fields of ethics, apologetics, and philosophical theology.
This volume includes thirteen scholarly, well written addresses on subjects of keen interest which were delivered from 1986 through 1998. The first lecture sets the tone for the volume: The Making and Keeping of Commitments by Lewis B. Smedes. Moral discourse is the topic of the lecture by James Gustafson. Following that Peter Kreeft lectures on immortality. Christian scholarship is discussed by Alvin Plantinga while Martin E. Marty discusses denominations. Marty `s first lecture is "Denominations: We Cannot Get Along With Them" and the second is titled "Denominations: We Cannot Get Along With Them." Medical ethics is the theme developed by Allen Verhey. Of interest to many is the comparison of neo-Calvinism and "Yale theology" by Nicholas P. Wolterstorff. Dewey J. Hoitenga writes on happiness. Conflict is presented by John Feikens while George Mavrodes discusses philosophy. Christian education is the topic on which Arthur F. Helms speaks. J. Harold Ellens deals with dysfunction. As a fitting conclusion to the series. Eleonore Stump's topic is on the problem of evil. These lectures have the freshness of a personal conversation and the topics are of compelling interest.
