n

A special evening public lecture with Dr. Iain Provan, celebrating the release of his new book, The Reformation and the Right Reading of Scripture (Waco: Baylor University Press, Fall 2017).

n

It was the opinion of the great Protestant reformer Martin Luther that 'the meaning of Scripture is, in and of itself, so certain, accessible, and clear that Scripture interprets itself and tests, judges and illuminates everything else.' As we celebrate the five-hundredth anniversary of Reformation (October 31, 1517) in the midst of what one contemporary author has described as 'pervasive interpretive pluralism' in the Church, we find that Luther's claim about the essential clarity (perspicuity) of Scripture is widely disputed: that it is indeed held partly responsible for the entire, secularized, fragmented condition of the modern world.

n

In this public lecture Dr. Provan will both re-examine what Luther and other Reformers believed about the perspicuity of Scripture and consider the viability of their teaching in our present circumstances.
