2-29-12 8th Annual Ellen White Issues Symposium
Symposium to be held at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary
Berrien Springs, Mich.—The eighth annual Ellen White Issues Symposium will be held on March 26, 2012, at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary. This year’s symposium takes as its theme Ellen White’s prophetic gift and inspiration.
The featured speakers include Roger Dudley, professor emeritus and director of the Institute of Church Ministry; Jiri Moskala, professor of Old Testament exegesis and theology; Jud Lake, professor of preaching and Adventist studies at Southern Adventist University; Stan Patterson, chair of the Department of Christian Ministry and director of the Christian Leadership Center; and Katrina Blue, a doctoral candidate in theology and church history. Each lecture will be followed by a question-and-answer session; and the symposium will close with a discussion of Ellen White and current issues.
Dudley will open the symposium with his lecture, “Ellen White and Me.” Jiri Moskala’s talk, “Can a Biblically Inspired Writer Use Literary Sources?” will explore the topic of White’s own inspiration. Jud Lake, who has recently published a book on Ellen White’s prophetic gift, will discuss a historical criticism of Ellen White in “D.M. Canright, Ellen White, and Inspiration: A Crisis in the Making.” After lunch, Stan Patterson will discuss “Ellen G. White on Leadership and Power,” followed by Katrina Blue’s talk, “Threads from an Old Fabric,” which will reveal new discoveries about the Holy Flesh movement in Indiana from 1899–1901, and Ellen White’s response to the movement.
The symposium is sponsored by Andrews University, the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary, the Department of Church History, the Center for Adventist Research and the Ellen G. White Estate, Inc. For more information about the symposium or to register, please visit www.andrews.edu/library/car/egwsymposium.html
