The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary this week added prominent church historian Michael A.G. Haykin to its faculty, appointing him as professor of biblical spirituality and church history.
A prolific author and noted scholar in areas of early church history, Baptist history and Christian spirituality, Haykin will pioneer Southernâ€™s innovative new Ph.D. and D.Min. programs in biblical spirituality, will teach and supervise doctoral students in patristic history, and will head the Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies at Southern, which will host events and publish materials related to Baptist history.
Regarding Southern Seminary Dr. Haykin is quotes as saying:
â€œI am thrilled with the appointment for many reasons,â€ Haykin said. â€œWhat the Lord has been doing in the past fifteen years or so at Southern Seminary makes it a thrilling place, spiritually and academically, to be. I am thrilled to be joining men as colleagues whom I deeply love admire, and some of whom I count among my closest friends. And I thrilled about the quality of students that I have seen at the school.â€
