How should Christians live in the 21st Century? Ethical problems arise every day for Christians and non-Christians, but many churches are avoiding the discussion on ethical issues when they should provide Christians with the tools to navigate these dillemmas. SES President, Dr. Richard Land, will be leading this summer module and will provide a study of ethical alternatives and issues from a Christian perspective. The class is available for public audit and currently enrolled students.
If you are intersted in participating as a public audit student, email our admissions department at Dnewman@ses.edu.
If you are currently in enrolled please register for this class via your populi account and register via course code AP512
Prior to becoming president of Southern Evangelical Seminary, Dr. Land served for twenty five years as the president of The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, the Southern Baptist Convention's official entity assigned to address social, moral, and ethical concerns, with particular attention to their impact on American families and their faith.
Dr. Land served as The Criswell College's Vice-President for Academic Affairs from 1980 to 1988. He had taught as Professor of Theology and Church History at that institution since 1975.
Dr. Land graduated with the Bachelor of Arts degree (magna cum laude) from Princeton University and with the Doctor of Philosophy degree from Oxford University in England. He also received a Master of Theology (Honors Program) degree from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary where he served as student body president and received the Broadman Seminarian Award as the outstanding graduating student.
Dr. Land served five terms with the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom. Former President Bush selected Dr. Land for his first two terms at the Commission (September 2001 to September 2004). He was then reappointed by former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist in 2005 and Senator Mitch McConnell in 2007 and 2010.
In February 2005, Land was featured in Time Magazine as one of "The Twenty-five Most Influential Evangelicals in America".
We look forward to seeing you in class!
