Watch lectures by top scholars given at the Lanier Theological Library

The Lanier Theological Library, in Houston, Texas, is a beautiful library. If you live close enough to it to visit it and use its resources, I am sure that you will find it a great benefit.

If you live elsewhere, however, you can still benefit from one aspect of the library’s provision. The LTL regularly hosts public lectures by excellent scholars, recordings of which are made freely available to anyone who wishes to watch them online. Recent speakers include Simon Gathercole, Michael Bird, Peter Williams, N. T. Wright, and Richard Bauckham.

I was particularly interested to see that Professor Larry Hurtado, Professor Emeritus of New Testament at the University of Edinburgh, recently gave a lecture covering some of the material from his recent book, Destroyer of the Gods (Waco, TX: Baylor University Press, 2016). It is a fascinating lecture and I recommend it to you.

I encourage students and other interested readers to have a look at the wide selection of topics and speakers available, and to take every opportunity to learn from them.
