Jeff Robinson November 19, 2008

Bruce A. Ware, a member of the Council on Biblical Manhoodand Womanhood, will today become president of the Evangelical Theological Society at the organization’s annual meeting in Providence, R.I

Ware was elected vice president of ETS by a unanimous vote of fellow scholars at the 58th annual ETS meeting in Washington, D.C. in 2006. After one year of serving as vice president and one year as president-elect, Ware began his term as president during the 60th annual meeting of ETS this week at the Rhode Island Convention Center. Ware serves as professor of Christian theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

“It is a tremendous honor and privilege to serve in a role of leadership in such a wonderful organization as ETS,” said Ware, who has served as professor of Christian Theology at Southern Seminary since 1998. “The Lord has blessed the organization and I believe continues to do so.”
