Council on Dispensational Hermeneutics

Calvary Theological Seminary is pleased to host the 2014 Council on Dispensational Hermeneutics. Moderated by Dr. Mike Stallard, the council serves to add academic weight and credibility to the effort at keeping objective interpretation of Scripture at the forefront of modern biblical presentation in churches and academia, as well as providing a forum for traditional dispensationalists to discuss hermeneutics and related matters.

The Council will meet September 17-18, 2014 on the campus of Calvary Bible College and Theological Seminary. (click here for directions to Calvary)
