Dr. Compton Presents Paper at ETS Meeting

Posted By

DBTS professors Dr. Bruce Compton and Dr. Tim Miller attended the 67th annual meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS) on Nov. 17-19 in Atlanta. The conference theme – “Marriage and Family” – was timely considering the Supreme Court’s recent departure from the biblical definition of marriage.

In response to Matthew Barrett’s book “Salvation by Grace,” Dr. Compton presented a paper discussing the relationship between faith and regeneration in the ordo salutis (order of salvation). Over 80 people attended his presentation. In addition, Dr. Compton moderated a session on Hebrews.

“I appreciate the intellectual and academic stimulus ETS provides,” he says. “It’s a joy to fellowship with faculty from sister schools and with those from broader evangelical circles. I also appreciate the opportunity to present, publish and have some influence within the evangelical world.”

An ETS member since the 1980s, Dr. Compton has presented papers five times during the past five years and moderated two sessions.
