Join the Library and School of Divinity On Tuesday, November 3 at 2:00 p.m. for the launch of a new collection of essays by Regent faculty, alumni, and students. The Holy Spirit and the Reformation Legacy explores the legacy of the Reformation with regard to the person and work of the Holy Spirit. Following the five-hundredth anniversary of Luther’s posting of his ninety-five theses, these essays consider this legacy with particular reference to the work of Martin Luther and John Calvin, as well as broader Reformation themes as they are related to pneumatology and the life of the church today. The book’s editors, Dr. Mark Cartledge and Dr. Mark Jumper will speak at the launch.
The event is free and open to the public and will be videoconferenced on Zoom. To register and receive a link, click here.
