|The 2012 Greenville Seminary Summer Theology Course will again feature Dr. Morton Smith's Studies in Southern Presbyterian Theology. Dr. Smith has lectured often on the topic of Southern Presbyterianism and its theology, and these lectures continue to be a favorite among students, elders, and Christians of all ages. The course is popular because it covers a wide range of topics through the instrumentality of those most interesting and sometimes controversial Southern Presbyterians. Who can resist hearing about Leighton Wilson or John Girardeau? And, of course, the class features "the great man of the South," James Henley Thornwell. The course will also include Archibald Alexander, John Holt Rice, Robert L. Dabney of Virginia, Benjamin M. Palmer, Robert Webb of Kentucky and many more. These men were international Calvinists, and no one knows them like Morton Smith. Come learn from the master.|
