There are many different colleges out there that are unique in many ways. It’s because of these differences that students choose which college will best fit them. Some students would prefer to be on a large campus and use different types of transportation to get from one place to another. For instance, students may have to take a bike, car or bus to get to their next class on time. Others prefer a smaller campus that’s easy to walk from class to class.
Risking an understatement, the 2nd annual McAllaster Scholars lecturer and New Testament scholar Dr. Richard Bauckham is an academic giant. Allow me to run through his credentials: in addition to teaching at Cambridge University, publishing nine books in New Testament studies, over fifteen articles in the same field (mind you, all just since I was born), and lecturing the world over, Dr. Bauckham is also the recipient of Christianity Today’s 2007 Book Award, a member of no less than the Royal Society of Edinburgh and the ultra-prestigious British Academy. Dr. Bauckham spoke to a well-attended crowd in Whitlock recital hall Thursday night of the essential connectedness of Christianity and ecology.
Have you ever been to Egypt? I have not. If you have been to Egypt at all, you will probably notice pyramids, warm weather and all what Egypt has to offer. If you have been in Egypt at some point after the fall of Hosni Mubarak, then you will have noticed people for and against the government in a sharp divide. The divide is between the Muslim groups and Non-Christians toward the Coptic Christians.
