in the 2013 (Winter) Payton Lectures
"Ethics in Troubled Times"
Held on January 30 & 31
in Travis Auditorium on the Fuller Pasadena Campus.
Fuller Theological Seminary instituted the Payton Lectures in 1948, providing for a series of divinity lectures by a competent scholar outside the regular faculty. The major stipulation of the lectureship is that one of the following three areas be addressed therein: the uniqueness or confirmation of the historic Christian faith; the confutation of nonChristian or subChristian views; the formulation of biblical doctrines. The lectureship is named for Dr. John E. and Mrs. Eliza Payton, parents of the late Mrs. Grace Fuller, wife of Charles E. Fuller, founder of the seminary. A generous gift from her estate has made possible the permanent endowment of the lectureship.
