RTS Dallas is delighted to announce that Dr. Sinclair Ferguson will be teaching Church and Sacraments October 19-24.
This course will explore Holy Scripture's teaching of the doctrine of the church and the sacraments (the Lord's Supper and Baptism). Special attention will be given to how these doctrines have been articulated, defended and examined from a distinctly Reformed position.
Dr. Sinclair Ferguson is a systematic theologian, preacher and author who is well-known in Reformed and Evangelical circles worldwide for his preaching, teaching, and writing. He has taught at Westminster Theological Seminary, in Philadelphia and Dallas, and at Redeemer Seminary for many years. We are glad to officially have him as a part of the RTS family.

He is currently the evening preacher in St Peter's Free Church of Scotland, Dundee. He has authored around fifty books and contributed to many others.
