Dordt Writes features Calvin Seerveld and John Kok
October 22, 2013
The November Dordt Writes event will feature Dr. John Kok, Dordt College dean for research and scholarship and director of the Andreas Center for Reformed Scholarship and Service, and Dr. Calvin Seerveld, writer and educator. Kok is the editor of six volumes of collected essays and lectures written by Seerveld that will be published by Dordt College Press. All are invited to share a cup of coffee and a cookie and hear them talk at 3 p.m. on Monday, November 4, in the John and Louise Hulst Library on the campus of Dordt College.
The upcoming books, all subtitled Sundry writings and occasional lectures, include:
- Normative Aesthetics
- Redemptive Art in Society
- Cultural Problems in Western Society
- Art History Revisited
- Cultural Education and History Writing
- Biblical Studies and Wisdom for Living
“Seerveld has dedicated his life to the study of aesthetics, redemptive art, and biblical wisdom; devoting himself to reformational scholarship and service since the early 1950s,” Kok says. “Editing his works has been an honor for me, and I’m happy to help make these writings available to all, exposing more people to his work.”
Seerveld will be the featured speaker at that day’s First Mondays Speaker Series. His first presentation, titled “How HOT is your Bible?” will be held at 11 a.m. in the B.J. Haan Auditorium. In the evening he’ll present “The Meaning of our Nakedness” in the Ribbens Academic Complex classroom CL1144/1148 at 7:30.
