A SHELTER FOR CONSCIENCE:
AMERICA’S RELIGIOUS LIBERTY FOR BAPTISTS AND OTHER DISSENTERS
A course in baptist history taught by Dr. bill j. leonard
Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond is situated in the very heart of the birth of our nation and is the ideal place to learn about religious liberty and our Baptist history. Come hear the voices of the early Baptist dissenters, explore sites where statues and laws regarding religious liberty were created and revered, and see where this important work continues today.
BTSR visiting scholar, Dr. Bill J. Leonard, will lead our exploration and discovery. He will be joined by Fred Anderson and Nathan Taylor of the Virginia Baptist Historical Society, and J. Brent Walker, former Executive Director of the Baptist Joint Committee, now Interim President of the John Leland Center for Theological Studies.
BTSR is the place to learn about religious liberty THEN and NOW!
