Undergrad Research Retreat

October 31, 2012 | Written by Matt Carter

It’s that time of the semester. Papers and projects are looming large. HST’s theological library is here to help!

You’re invited to join us November 9-10, Friday evening through Saturday afternoon, for a research retreat. HST librarians and students will be on hand to orient you to the library and assist you in your research.

This is no ordinary library. And this is no ordinary research retreat! There will be food, games, and prizes to go along with in-depth studies to help you succeed.

HST is providing housing Friday night and breakfast and lunch on Saturday, so please RSVP via the link on the left or the form at the bottom of this page.

Who should come?

Anyone who has a research paper or project in theology, biblical studies, counseling, church history, or ministry.

How much does it cost?

The research retreat costs nothing.

  • We are planning to go out to eat Friday evening at Corky’s, so please bring enough money for your meal ($10-20).
  • Housing for Friday night is provided at no cost on the HST campus.
  • Breakfast and lunch on Saturday are provided.

More details available here, including the schedule and registration information.

As I Remember It – Dr. Lewis’ Autobiography

October 19, 2012 | Written by Matt Carter

The name Jack Lewis is synonymous with biblical scholarship among members of churches of Christ. He was one of the original professors of HST, and was largely responsible for setting the academic bar high.

In his autobiography, “As I Remember It,” Dr. Jack tells his story beginning with his boyhood in a small Texas town to his academic pursuits at Abilene Christian University, Harvard University and Hebrew Union, as well as his experiences as a local preacher and a long-time instructor at Harding School of Theology. As a scholar, a writer, a mentor, a family man and a committed Christian, Jack Lewis has lived a life the reader will also want to remember.

Dr. Jack will have a book signing at 3:30, October 28, in the Children’s Worship Center of the Church of Christ at White Station (1106 Colonial Road in Memphis). You may purchase the book at the signing or buy direct from Gospel Advocate at 800-251-8446. $24.99 + shipping and handling. All profits go to the HST Library, which Dr. Lewis has supported for decades.
