Author's Forum With Dr. David VanDrunen, This Coming Friday, April 4


Join us at our next Author's Forum on Friday April 4 at 7:30 p.m @ Christ Reformed Church.   Dr. David M. VanDrunen will be our guest author and lecture on his recent book A Biblical Case for Natural Law.

This monograph is for Christians who are perplexed about the biblical standing of natural law. It offers an explicitly biblical defense for the existence and practical importance of natural law. If natural law is taught in Scripture, it should certainly be affirmed in Christian theology. The Studies In Christian Social Ethics and Economics series compiles topical studies of issues in Christian social ethics and economics integrating biblical studies, theology, economics, political theory, history, and various Christian traditions as centered in the Scriptures. The primary objective is to bring practitioners in these fields together to focus on the implications and applications of Christian social ethics in the church and society.

Dr. David M. VanDrunen is the Robert B. Strimple Professor of Systematic Theology and Christian Ethics. Dr. VanDrunen is a minister of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and a licensed attorney in the state of Illinois, began teaching at Westminster Seminary California in 2001. Prior to this, from 1999–2001, he served as a pastor of Grace Orthodox Presbyterian Church in Hanover Park, IL. Currently he serves on the OPC’s Committee on Christian Education and Subcommittee on Ministerial Training. His present research interests include the doctrines of justification, natural law, and the two kingdoms.

The 2004 recipient of the Acton Institute’s Novak Award, he is the author of A Biblical Case for Natural Law and Law and Custom: The Thought of Thomas Aquinas and the Future of the Common Law, and editor of The Pattern of Sound Doctrine: Systematic Theology at the Westminster Seminaries: Essays in Honor of Robert B. Strimple.  His scholarly articles have appeared in the Journal of Law and Religion, The American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly, Calvin Theological Journal, Journal of Church and State, The International Journal of Systematic Theology, The Journal of Markets and Morality, and The University of British Columbia Law Review.

Not that it's important, but an alb and stole would be less "gaudy". Charles

That picture is from Dr. VanDrunen's inaugural lecture at Westminster Seminary California. It is not a worship service, but an academic lecture in an academic institution. The robe he is wearing is his doctoral gown from the university where he earned his PhD. This is standard protocol for any serious school.

MGB: I stand corrected. The pic gave the impression it was taken in Church. Reformed here, and more "high church" concerning liturgy and vestments.
