Cairn University is pleased to announce that Dr. Keith Plummer, dean of the School of Divinity, has been named a fellow of the new Keller Center for Cultural Apologetics.
The Keller Center was launched on February 7 by The Gospel Coalition. Acknowledging that the Western church is found in a post-Christendom culture, the Center has a threefold mission to “open the front door” of the church to unbelievers, “close the back door” by strengthening the faith of those already in the church, and “send out the equipped” to take Christ into local communities.
Knowing the purpose and goals of the Center, Dr. Plummer is a perfect fit for their inaugural group of fellows. He has been serving the Cairn University community since 2010, challenging students to think critically about their faith and their engagement with the world. As a professor of theology, he has served as the primary faculty for the senior-level Apologetics course in addition to many other courses focused on applied theology. He also contributed to two recent books, Before You Lose Your Faith: Deconstructing Doubt in the Church and The Digital Public Square: Christian Ethics in a Technological Society.
In his role as a fellow, Dr. Plummer will create tools and resources for the benefit of the evangelical church that combine “rigorous cultural analysis with theological depth.”
