Robert Godfrey on 2K TheologyPosted: September 20, 2010
In this second session from Ligonier Ministries’ 2010 Regional Conference in Washington, D.C., Dr. Robert Godfrey addressed the topic of “Christ, Kingdom, & Culture.” Robert Godfrey is President and professor of church history at Westminster Seminary California, serves on the board of directors for Ligonier Ministries, and is one of Ligonier’s teaching fellows.
