Dr. David Lyle Jeffrey was in Edmonton earlier this year serving as the keynote speaker for the Canadian Centre for Scholarship and the Christian Faith’s conference on “The Humanities and the Christian Faith.” Dr. Jeffrey, a widely acclaimed scholar and Distinguished Professor of Literature and Humanities at Baylor University, is the author of such books as People of the Book and (with Dr. Gregor Maillet) InterVarsity Press’ 2011 book Christianity and Literature.

Dr. Jeffrey spoke on “the central role of Scripture and Scripture study in the formation of the Western humane disciplines and, in that way, the formation of western universities and colleges.” So, if the relationship between the Christian faith and the humanities is of interest to you, this is a video worth watching.
