Foundation Lectures

The Covenant Presbyterian Church Foundation and the Discipleship Committee are partnering to present a new annual lecture series that brings prominent Christian speakers and authors to our campus. The support from the Covenant Foundation will give Covenant members, friends and the broader community the opportunity to engage deeply on topics of faith, community and service during sessions presented over two days.

Peter Enns has a Ph.D. from Harvard and occupies an endowed chair at his university, but he talks like a normal person because he is otherwise just a regular guy who loves God and baseball. He even writes like a normal person (well, actually better, according to his literary agent). Pete’s deep curiosity about the Bible led to questions that nearly cost him his faith before they deepened it in new ways. However, they did end up costing him his job as a professor of Old Testament, but hey—a little notoriety can add some color to the halls of academia. Now, Enns is passionate about helping us understand the Bible in a way that deepens faith, freeing us to bring our doubts, fears, and questions to God.

As a speaker, Enns can balance his deep understanding of the Bible with his down-to-earth humor and conversational style. While unflinchingly honest about the Bible and faith, he is sincere and pastoral in his desire to see others discover the Bible to be a breath of fresh air: a guide for our messy lives of faith, not a rulebook for living or an irrelevant document for gullible believers. While he speaks regularly at colleges and universities across the country, including Duke Divinity School, Princeton Seminary, University of Pennsylvania, Pete also lectures at churches and conferences around the world, including the The Korean Bible Society, Central PA Forum for Religion & Science, The Thelma Fordham Pruett Conference on the Academy & Religious Faith, and the Society of Biblical Literature.

In addition to his writing speaking and teaching, Pete is a regular blogger and host of the popular podcast The Bible For Normal People.
