Drinkard is a native of Greensboro, N.C. and is the former dean of the School of Theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville.
When Drinkard is not teaching, one of his hobbies is Bible collecting. He began collecting Bibles over 40 years ago when he studied in England. He now uses the Bibles in the classroom and in church presentations “to remind us how God has worked and continues to work through all languages and all translations to reveal to all people God’s word and God’s will for all people,” he said.
Campbellsville University’s Office of Church Relations and External Relations is also a sponsor of the January Bible Preview.
The Bible study is free, but there is a $10 charge for the meal which is payable that day.
Registration is from 12:30 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Banquet Hall
