Ellis, Phillips Professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at Hardin-Simmons University, during HPU’s fall Lectures in Christian Scriptures tomorrow, November 5, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Richard and Wanda Jackson Conference Room of HPU’s Paul and Jane Meyer Faith and Life Leadership Center. The event is free and open to the public.

Dr. Ellis’ presentation is titled “Amos: Prophet of Economic Justice for Our Day.” Dr. Donnie Auvenshine, dean of HPU’s School of Christian Studies, calls this a “timely topic.”

“Dr. Bob Ellis does a great job of applying the words of the Old Testament prophets to our contemporary circumstances and situations,” said Dr. Auvenshine. “Given the widespread discussion of economic issues, including economic justice issues, this should be an insightful and thought-provoking lecture.”

Dr. Ellis is the brother of Dr. Bill Ellis, HPU president. For more information about the event, contact HPU’s School of Christian Studies at (325) 649-8403.
