Stob Lecture History

Originally called the “Stob Lectureship”, the Stob Lecture Series was signed into being in 1985 as a collaboration between Calvin University and Calvin Theological Seminary. The annual Stob Lectureship was designed to bring to the campus, in either the fall or spring semester of each year, an established or promising scholar for the delivery of two “Stob Lectures” to a campus audience consisting of professors, students and other interested persons. The chosen lecturer would have a notable academic reputation in the fields of philosophy, ethics, and/or theology; resonate with the Reformed and Christian perspectives embodied by the life and work of Dr. Henry Stob; and have the ability to communicate effectively to a general audience.
