The Retirement of John Frame

Professor John Frame will teach his final theology class in May 2017, bringing to a conclusion forty-nine years of service to the world of theological education. Dr. Frame joined the faculty of RTS Orlando in 2001, where he has served as the John Dyer Trimble Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics.
