May “Towers” looks at theology in thought and action

Communications Staff — May 7, 2012

The April 2012 “Towers” is now on stands and online.

We’ve all seen and heard the two extremes. One is the German-reading, bearded fellow who prefers theology only in old brick buildings. The other is the county-seat pastor who shivers at the idea of Augustine and Calvin and wants only to pursue the “real” task of soul-winning. And then we’re stuck wondering, “Which is more important: theory or practice, thought or action?”

In this “Towers,” Timothy K. Beougher and Owen Strachan help readers think about this issue and see that, properly understood, action rises out of thought. The two are intrinsically related.

The May issue also includes an interview with Capitol Hill Baptist Church pastor Mark Dever about his two new books, an illustrated overview of the 2012 Together for the Gospel conference and Southern Seminary’s newly unveiled 10-year master plan to reset and restore the campus.

Additionally, we take a satirical look at the quirks and idiosyncrasies of Seminary-Guy: our SBTS hipster.
