The service begins in prayer (00:00-01:46), and the speaker, Dr. Theron D. Price is introduced. He was the pastor of Wornall Road Baptist Church in Kansas City, MO (01:47-03:09). The subject of Dr. Price’s lecture was “Great Sculptor, Hugh and Polish Us!” (03:10-10:14). His message focuses on the relationships of theological education to being shaped according to God’s purpose. Dr. Price then discusses the nature and objectives of a theological school (10:15-29:42) before highlighting some points of view in school and student body which seem promising of fruit (29:43-46:33). He closes with listing some dangers in the contemporary (at that time) Christian situation (46:34-49:54), and he ends his time in prayer (49:55-51:26).
Dr. Edwin Luther Copeland was Visiting Professor of Missions at SEBTS. This chapel address was presented during the Spring 1989 Convocation. In this message, Dr. Copeland's subject was "Three Particular Areas in which the Unitive Mission of Christ Uniquely Intersects with the Intellectual Mission of Theological Education." Dr. Copeland says that Western secular culture, religious pluralism, and the inner division of Christianity are major challenges in this area.
