A Center for the Retrieval of Christian Wisdom

Free Lecture Series

An Introduction to Biblical Wisdom

Free in-person lecture series, open to the public, with eminent biblical scholar Dr. Alastair Roberts.
Join us at the Davenant House for as many lectures as you’re able! Please RSVP below.

We will be recording this set of lectures by Dr. Roberts for use in our Davenant Hall M.Litt. program in Classical Protestantism. Once recorded, the lectures will be available for purchase, but we’re inviting folks in the area to come along as a “studio audience” to watch the lectures in person for free. Before and afterward, you’ll have the opportunity to fellowship with the Davenant House community and ask questions of Dr. Roberts and his wife, the prominent evangelical writer, Susannah Black Roberts.
