Video Icon

How do we respond to the deconstruction movement? Gavin Ortlund (PhD, Fuller Theological Seminary) delivered the annual Drummond Bush Lecture on Thursday, September 14 at 7:00pm. How does Jesus call us to respond and be a help to those experiencing deconstruction? Dr. Ortlund urges us to listen with genuine love and point to the beauty of Jesus.

Dr. Ortlund is the author of several books, including Why God Makes Sense in a World That Doesn’t: The Beauty of Christian Theism (Baker Academic, 2021) and Why Protestantism Makes Sense: The Case for An Always Reforming Church (Zondervan Reflective, 2024). He runs the YouTube channel Truth Unites.

The Drummond Bush Lecture was established in 2011 and made possible by a generous gift from Mrs. Drummond in memory of her late husband Dr. Lewis Drummond, fourth president of SEBTS (1988-1992). The Drummond-Bush lecture series honors Dr. L. Russ Bush, who at the time of his death was professor of Philosophy at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and director of the L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture. The lecture series addresses apologetic and cultural issues related to the life and ministry of the Church.

Listen with genuine love, and point to the beauty of Jesus.
