Greenville Seminary

Thanks to Jeff Downs for directly letting us know about these resources!

I have enjoyed past audio downloads from Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary’s Spring Conference especially last year’s topic on Old Princeton.  Each year they focus on a particular subject and have their faculty along with distinguished guests lecture and preach on various facets of the subject.  This year was on the doctrine of man.  This year’s audio is already available for free download!  They are originally from here.

A few months ago I did a post about Greenville’s Presbyterian Theological Seminary’s 2012 Theological Conference’s theme was on Old Princeton.  Old Princeton is a fascinating part of historical theology for me–and no doubt from the amount of books and journals published about it, the contribution of Old Princeton is still important and relevant when it comes to understanding apologetics, bibliology, ecclesiology, the modernist/fundamentalist divide, etc.

They have just recently loaded up all the lectures from that conference for Free!  Let them you appreciate it.  I know I definitely do!  On that note, I’m also thankful for our friend Jeff Downs who loaded these up!

There are twelve Mp3s in the Series:

1.) “Princeton Beginnings (A. Alexander)” by James Garretson

2.) “Samuel Miller’s Pastoral Theology” by Pastor Andrew Webb

3.) “Princeton and the Old Testament” by Benjamin Shaw

4.) “Scripture, Inerrancy, & the Role of Reason” by Paul Helseth

5.) “Princeton and Missions” by L. Anthony Curto

6.) “Ecclesiology: The Hodge/Thornwell Exchange” by C. N. Willborn

7.) “19th Century Crosscurrents: Hodge/Finney/Neven” by Daryl G. Hart

8.) “Princeton and Evolution/Creation” by Joseph Pipa

9.) “Biblical Rationale for a Reformed Seminary” by Joseph Pipa

10.) “Theological Assessment of B. B. Warfield” by Carl R. Trueman

11.) “Machen and the End of Old Princeton” by Daryl G. Hart

12.) “Q&A Combined” by Various Speakers

I’m a fan of reading up things by Old Princeton and also about Old Princeton. Or for that matter, listening to things about Old Princeton.

Of course, there are lots of debates about the significance and the legacy of Old Princeton, even among conservatives.

Greenville Seminary has loaded up some of the lectures from their Spring 2012 conference and also podcasts interviews on this subject.  You might enjoy them! I can not wait till they load up all the lectures online.

Princeton and the Old Testament– Interview with Dr. Benjamin Shaw.  Fascinating discussion, and I believe that this topic is very relevant today in light of the fact that some scholars that came from a Reformed Presuasion has swayed into more liberal methods, it’s a timely lesson for today.

Charles Hodge and Thornwell Debate- Interview with Dr. Willborn on this historical discussion.

Scripture, Inerrancy and the Role of Reason- Lecture by Dr. Helseth who wrote the book concerning Princeton and Right reason (gets into the controversy of Scottish Sense realism charge).

Biblical Rational for a Reformed Seminary- Dr. Pipa, president of Greenville Seminary, gives the rational for a Reformed Seminary.
