Dr. Wayne Grudem will be in Kentucky this week for a four-site speaking tour focused on his new book, Politics According to the Bible.

The first stop will be tonight at 7:00 p.m. at Tates Creek Presbyterian Church, 3900 Rapid Run Drive, Lexington.

On Tuesday, Grudem will speak at 10:00 a.m. at Ashland Avenue Baptist Church, 483 W. Reynolds Road, Lexington; and at 2:00 p.m. in Heritage Hall in the Honeycutt Building at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, 2825 Lexington Road, Louisville.

The tour will continue in Princeton, Ky., on Wednesday, January 16 at Southside Baptist Church, 205 Nichols Street.

All engagements are free and open to pastors and the general public. The tour is sponsored by the Family Foundation of Kentucky. Please RSVP by email, [email protected] or call 859-255-5400.

Grudem is Research Professor of Theology and Biblical Studies at Phoenix Seminary in Phoenix, Arizona, and has been best known by theologians and seminary students for his textbook, Systematic Theology.

Prior to Phoenix Seminary he taught for twenty years at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois, where he was chairman of the Department of Biblical and Systematic Theology. He received a B.A. from Harvard University, an M.Div. from Westminster Seminary in Philadelphia, and a Ph.D. (in New Testament) from the University of Cambridge in England.

He has published sixteen books, including his most recent, Politics According to the Bible, which is the topic of his presentation at each of the four locations in Kentucky.

With the rising interest in religious liberty following the abortion and contraception mandates placed on the Catholic Church by Obamacare regulations, many pastors and citizens alike want to learn more about what the Bible teaches in regards to the believer’s role in government. It is this quest that Grudem engages as he surveys the Bible and its implications for involvement in governmental affairs.
