Feb. 21 Towers: fire-fading marriages; confessing the sins of a seminarian; and Getty answers “Three Questions”

Communications Staff — February 21, 2011


The Feb. 21 “Towers” is now available around campus and online. As the cover’s pink candy heart, ironically etched with the words “not enuf,” suggests, this issue’s feature content attempts to expound on the only solid grounding of relationships: Christ. Here is the PDF from the SBTS Resources page.

This issue includes:

  • Steve Watters, Southern Seminary’s new director of publications and strategic initiatives, writes an insightful article about true growth in a marriage in “Don’t focus on re-igniting marriage when the fire fades” (pages 3 and 5);
  • A former SBTS student pleads with the seminary husbands to put their wives before their studies in a piercing, anonymously written article, “Husbands, love your wives more than seminary: confessing the sins of a seminarian” (page 4);
  • President R. Albert Mohler Jr. and School of Theology Dean Russell D. Moore contribute to FamilyLifes’s newly released DVD seminar, “The Art of Marriage” (page 7);
  • Chuck Lawless, dean of the Billy Graham School and vice president for academic programming, offers a brief testimony about SBC’s Cooperative Program in “Partnering for the Gospel: Why I’m thankful for the Cooperative Program” (page 8);
  • Regular contributor Steve Jones highlights to the affectionate correspondence between Charlotte and John Broadus in this issue’s History Highlight, “Love letters of Charlotte and John Broadus” (page 12); and
  • “Three Questions” with Keith Getty, book reviews, news around campus and more.
