Saxon Series to Feature SDA Historian

Saxon Series to Feature SDA Historian

This year’s Saxon Lecture Series on the campus of Southwestern Adventist University will begin Saturday, Feb. 9 with denominational historian Paul McGraw.

His topic for Saturday afternoon’s presentation is “How to Misuse Ellen White: History, Science, and Prophecy.” Knowing that misuse can undermine use, McGraw will suggest appropriate principles for understanding and applying Ellen White’s writings in the 21st century. The Saxon Lecture will be presented in Wharton Auditorium at 4 p.m.

The annual Saxon Lecture Series is the brainchild of George Saxon, retired physics professor from Southwestern, who promoted the series and supported it financially with the goal of promoting scholarly discussion on science and religion. Running since 2007, the series has featured topics such as Galileo, John Harvey Kellogg, evolution, dinosaurs, and the new atheism.
