After Carl Trueman delivered the inaugural lecture (2023) for the Center for Classical Theology, he was joined by a team of theologians, including Matthew Barrett, Kevin DeYoung, and James Dolezal, for a time of Q&A.
Carl Trueman’s captivating lecture is called “Classical Theology and the Modern Mind,” and he demonstrates why a return to the orthodoxy of the creeds and confessions is the remedy to the challenges we face on this side of modernity. In the past, Trueman has diagnosed our turn to the modern self, but in this lecture he provides the remedy that begins with the doctrine of God.
The CCT annual lecture is sponsored by Crossway. In the aftermath of modernism’s deconstruction of dogmatics, each lectureship is committed to the renewal of dogmatics with the church catholic (universal)—from the church fathers to the medieval and Protestant scholastics. CCT summons the next generation of theologians to exemplify biblical reasoning, rational contemplation, and reformed catholicity that directs systematic theology to its spiritual end and most blessed hope: beholding the beauty of the Lord.
