CBFM Explores Ways to Integrate Biblical Studies With Concerns Facing the Church

August 18, 2019 | Education | Kim Strobel

How can Adventists engage with the questions of today with humility and confidence? Through the Center for Bible, Faith, and Mission (CBFM) at Walla Walla University, the faculty in the School of Theology seek to provide a framework for addressing difficult questions within the context of committed Bible study and application of Scripture.

In their work through the CBFM, each year WWU theology faculty present seminars, lectures and conferences on a variety of topics throughout the Pacific Northwest.

During the 2018–19 academic year, Dave Thomas, professor of practical theology and apologetics, and Alden Thompson, professor of biblical studies, spoke in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; Spokane, Wash.; and Portland, Ore., on topics that included the history of Adventism and the doctrine of the Trinity. Brant Berglin, associate professor of biblical studies, spoke in Moscow, Idaho, and Coos Bay, Ore., about the book of Revelation.

Church leaders can request a speaker through the CBFM by contacting the WWU School of Theology at 509-527-2194 or by sending an email.
