Tom Schreiner at Oak Hill on Perseverance and Warnings

In May, my friend and co-author of The Race Set Before Us, Tom Schreiner, was at Oak Hill College, London, where he gave the 2008 Oak Hill School of Theology lectures titled "Run to Win the Prize: The Nature of Warnings in New Testament Theology." Tom is working on a manuscript for a trade book for a popular readership under the title, Run to Win the Prize. It is interesting, because I have been working on my own manuscript under the same title, which happens to be the original title under which we submitted our manuscript for The Race Set Before Us. Tom also offered a lecture on believers baptism and followed it with questions.

Check out the audio recordings of each lecture below. Or, you may prefer to download the recordings here.

Also, you may find Tom Schreiner's essay, Perseverance and Assurance: A Survey and a Proposal, useful. It is adapted from a series of lectures Tom gave at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri. It offers a nice summary of the core of our argument in The Race Set Before Us.

Hi Ardel
Thanks for the link to Tom Schreiner's talks. It prompted me to download them and also to buy his New Testament Theology. I hope you're getting kickbacks ...

And in his talks he says your name, which I had always pronounced like the silly man on Father Ted and Superhero, but he puts the stress on the second syllable. I assume that he is correct in his pronunciation.

The talks related to the book are particularly good.
