HST congratulates Dr. Dave Bland on the publication of his new book, Proverbs and the Formation of Character, available here from Amazon.

Bland has written extensively on the book of Proverbs and teaches a course titled “Wisdom Literature and Character Formation for Congregations” (syllabus) in the HST Doctor of Ministry program. As a part of that course, Bland created short videos outlining some of the Proverbs as they relate to an issue in character formation. Here is his video on Gluttony.

The New Testament in the New World – A Tour with Oster and Turner

November 10, 2015 | Written by Matt Carter

The New Testament in the New World

A Culturally-Savvy Tour of Boston, New York, and Philadelphia
with Richard Oster and Bob Turner

Join us on a tour of three of America’s most beloved cities: Boston, New York, and Philadelphia. These bustling centers have more than just taxi cabs, famous streets, historic buildings, and greasy food. They also boast museums with some of the most important ancient artifacts in the world, which will help you understand the New Testament like never before. But this tour won’t just drop you off in a massive museum and leave you to make sense of it. Instead, you’ll be led by New Testament guru Richard Oster. He has spent his career studying the ways that various coins, inscriptions, and statues illuminate the message of Scripture.

Sounds great, right? But not sure you (or your significant other) want to spend a whole week in museums? No problem. We’ll also see each city by bus, take in a Broadway show, offer free time for shopping, and feast on the cuisine that has helped make each city famous. Now that’s an offer you can’t refuse.

Highlights include:

Downloadable Flyer

We’ll fly out on Monday, May 23rd and have you back by Sunday, May 29th. The cost is still being determined.

For more details or to be added to a mailing list for the tour, email Bob Turner.
