In Memoriam Part II: Thomas H. Olbricht as Theologian and Historian for the Church’s Sake

When: June 10, 2021, 1:45 pm - Thursday

Where: Swang 238

Session 4

Session Abstract

This session explores the work of Thomas H. Olbricht as a biblical theologian, church leader, and historian of the Restoration Movement.  Olbricht spent decades attempting to situate the development of the Restoration Movement in a succession of historical settings, scaled from the local to the international.  This work served more than an academic interest for him, however.  It was part of an attempt to make sense of, and reckon with, his own life as a member of this movement and to help others do the same.

Ken Berry, Bible League International, Convener

  • Kathy Pulley, Missouri State University, Emeritus, Participant
  • Carl Holladay, Candler School of Theology, Emory University, Participant
  • Douglas A. Foster, Abilene Christian University (Emeritus), Participant
