The Henry Center
A few weeks ago at Together for the Gospel, I was glad to sit down with Owen Strachan, the new managing director of the Carl F. H. Henry Center for Theological Understanding based at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, IL. I'm really excited about the mission of this ministry:
The Carl F. H. Henry Center for Theological Understanding The Center seeks to embody the vision of Carl F. H. Henry (1913-2003), a long-time faculty member at Trinity, for Christian thinking that makes a difference in the academy, in our churches, and in the secular world. The work of the Center is thus aimed at promoting gospel-centered thinking and living with others—from a variety of ethnic and social backgrounds—for the glory of God, the good of His church, and the welfare of the world.
[The mission of the Henry Center is] to provide an opportunity for ministers, professionals, and academics in various fields to work collaboratively with seminary faculty engaged in biblical and theological reflection. The goal of this partnership is to advance Christian wisdom in all areas of life and thoughté─πin short, to enable people to apply the knowledge of God and themselves gleaned from Scripture in the rough and tumble of life.
One recent feature I wanted to highlight is a conversation The Henry Center just posted between Dr. Doug Sweeney, professor of Church History at TEDS, and Collin Hansen, author of Young, Restless, Reformed, on the reformed movement. Collin is an MDiv student at TEDS and the Henry Center sponsored this discussion as part of its "Trinity Symposia" program. Collin is a good friend of mine and an insightful writer. His evaluation of the young reformed movement is fascinating.
Listen to the 40 minute discussion, which includes some Q&A.
