Mission & Purpose

The L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture seeks to engage culture as salt and light, presenting and defending the Christian faith and demonstrating its implications for all areas of human existence.

The Center has a two-fold purpose: (1) To convey graciously and apply effectively the Christian worldview to all areas of culture and to the human condition; (2) To encourage and support the Church in its redemptive work.

Lecture: Did Adam and Eve Really Exist? Who they were and why you should care

Date: 7pm, February 20, 2014

Location: Wake Forest Baptist Church

Lecture Description: When it comes to the question of our origins, the Christian story allows room for difference on such matters as how long ago; but it depends on a unified and supernatural origin of humankind, and an actual Adam and Eve, who, at the headwaters, disobeyed God and brought sin and dysfunction into human experience.

About the Lecture Series: The Carver-Barnes Lecture Fund was established in 1961. It is funded by income from gifts of Mr. and Mrs. Harold C. Fechner of Lee’s Summit, Missouri, and Mrs. W. Lee Beaver of Chesterfield, Missouri. The Lecture is named in honor of Dr. W. O. Carver (1868-1954), Professor of Missions at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Dr. W. W. Barnes (1883-1960), Professor of Church History at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. The stated purpose of these lectures is to invite recognized scholars from America and abroad to address issues regarding the history and mission of the church

jack collinsAbout the Speaker: Jack Collins is Professor of Old Testament at Covenant Theological Seminary in St Louis, Missouri. He was teen-aged herpetologist, and went to MIT for his S.B. and S.M. (Computer Science and Systems Engineering, 1978), to Faith Lutheran Seminary for his M.Div. (1985), and to the University of Liverpool for his Ph.D. (Hebrew linguistics, 1989). He has been a research engineer, a church-planter, and, since 1993, a teacher. His early work focused on the grammar of Hebrew and Greek, but he has branched out into studies in science and faith, in how the New Testament uses the Old, and in Biblical theology. He was Old Testament Chairman for the English Standard Version of the Bible, and Old Testament Editor for the English Standard Version Study Bible. He is the author of The God of Miracles: An exegetical examination of God’s action in the world (Crossway, 2000); Science and Faith: Friends or Foes? (Crossway, 2003); Genesis 1-4: A linguistic, literary, and theological commentary (P&R, 2006); Did Adam and Eve Really Exist?: Who They Were and Why You Should Care (Crossway, 2011). He and his wife have been married since 1979, and have a daughter and a son.
