«The call of Abram is the central missional text of the Bible but it's not the beginning of the story. The story begins with the incarnational God showing up in Ur, whose citizens worshipped foreign gods; it begins with an incarnational God appearing to an elderly man in a polytheistic culture. In our post-Christian context, the church needs to return to her roots, remembering that God's missional call began not in the Promised Land but in a pagan city.

Carol Kaminski is Professor of Old Testament at Gordon-Conwell. Her passion for providing in-depth biblical teaching for laypeople led her to publish an Old Testament timeline and reader’s guide. Her research interests include the covenants and meta-narrative of the Old Testament as well as the theology and exegesis of Genesis.

This lecture is part of Regent College's 2018 Summer Evening Public Lecture Series.

Dr. Kaminski will be teaching the class 'Covenants of the Old Testament' from July 9–13, 2018 as part of their 2018 Summer Programs. Learn more at rgnt.net/summer
