Speakers

Christianity is a faith that must be put into practice. Although God saves His people through faith alone in Christ alone, that faith never remains alone. True saving faith makes a difference in our lives as we seek to obey our Savior and Lord. The Apostle James provides some of Scripture’s clearest guidance on how Christians should both hear what God has revealed and do what His Word commands. During this eight-day study cruise, Ligonier Teaching Fellows Drs. W. Robert Godfrey and Derek Thomas will lead us through James 1 against the breathtaking landscape of Alaska. As we study the Apostle’s essential teachings on the character of God, we will be joyfully motivated to act on His Word and to live for His glory.

W. Robert Godfrey

Dr. W. Robert Godfrey is Ligonier’s chairman of the board as well as president emeritus and professor emeritus of church history at Westminster Seminary California. He is author of several books, including Saving the Reformation and Learning to Love the Psalms.

Derek Thomas

Dr. Derek W.H. Thomas is senior minister of the First Presbyterian Church in Columbia, S.C., and Chancellor’s Professor of Systematic and Pastoral Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary. He is a Ligonier Ministries teaching fellow and author of many books.
